PHOENIX -- Firefighters had to force their way past two large dumpsters to get to a residential fire Monday morning.

The fire was in a utility shed for a manufactured home at 43rd Avenue and Van Buren Street.

Firefighters were training nearby and were on scene in less than four minutes, according to a spokesperson for the Phoenix Fire Department.

The fire was contained to the shed and did not reach the house. 

None of the firefighters or residents was injured.

Two adults and five children have been displaced by the fire because the electricity had to be shut off.
