PHOENIX -- Investigators are trying to determine if a generator was responsible for an early morning fire at a Phoenix home.

It happened before dawn Thursday near Deer Valley Road and Interstate 17.

Firefighters knocked down the fire, minimizing the damage to both the inside and the outside of the home.

A caretaker was inside when the fire started. He smelled the smoke and saw the flames. He escaped unharmed.
