A lightning strike also sparked the McFall fire Saturday near Sabino Canyon. Crews say it's burned about 15 acres and is now 80% contained. Thanks to some rain it's showing little, if any growth.


A man living on the 4400-block of East Waverly left home. And when he returned, the house was completely destroyed by a fire.

A spokesperson for the Tucson Fire Department says 50% of the interior of the home was damaged by flames. The rest of the house has smoke damage. The fire started on the back porch. Firefighters say it was an accidental electrical fire.
