TUCSON, Ariz. -- Northwest firefighters spent part of a cold Sunday night outside fighting an attic fire.

It happened around 5 Sunday evening just south of River Road near Camino de la Tierra.  Firefighters say a neighbor saw the front door of a house on fire and called 911.

"We know that all of the family members were evacuated safely from the house, including all of the pets. We know that there were smoke detectors present and they were sounding as the family was alerted to the fire by the neighbors,"

The red cross is assisting the family.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
