PHOENIX – Two people were able to escape a house fire in Phoenix Wednesday morning.

The Phoenix Fire Department received numerous 911 calls about a fire near 12th Street and Interstate 10 shortly before 8 a.m.

Spokesman Ruben Saavedra said it is believed that the fire started in the detached garage and extended to the attic of the house.

Crews kept the fire isolated to the one home.

The resident said a friend living on the property woke him up and told him the house was on fire.

Both were able to escape without injury.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
