TUCSON, Ariz. -- Northwest firefighters battled a fire that ripped through a mobile home in the Flowing Wells area.

It happened around 4:00 Monday afternoon near Romero and Wetmore.

Fire investigators have not figured out the cause.

They believe the home was vacant, however, neighbors recalled seeing people in and out of the residence in recent days.


BISBEE, Ariz. -- Authorities released the name of the 12-year-old boy who died in a house fire in Bisbee over the weekend.

Investigators say Alexander Swigart told his parents about the fire, but ran back inside once everyone was out.

Because of the severity of the flames, firefighters couldn't get back in to save Alexander.

They later found his body under a bed. The boy's father says he was autistic and appeared confused.

No word yet what caused the fire.
