SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A first-alarm house fire displaced two adults late Sunday night in Scottsdale, according to Capt. Danny Ables with Scottsdale fire.

Around 10:15 p.m., Scottsdale fire responded to a house fire near 95th Street and Pinnacle Peak Road.

On arrival, firefighters spotted smoke coming from the roof of a single-story home, Ables said.

The homeowner told firefighters that he left his home in the afternoon and when he returned, he found an electrical panel on the exterior of the home on fire.

Crews were able to make entry into the home and check for any remaining occupants.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire after it extended from the electrical panel to the attic and a small portion of the house. 

Two adults will be displaced for an unknown amount of time, Ables said.

A Scottsdale firefighter was treated and transported for possible dehydration but Ables said the firefighter is in stable condition.

The fire is currently under investigation by Scottsdale fire investigators.
