TUCSON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Crews rescued multiple rabbits from a house fire in Tucson early Saturday morning.

Tucson Fire Department crews said a neighbor was asleep in her bedroom when she woke up to the room getting hot and noticed the orange glow of flames coming from the neighbor's home outside the bedroom window.

Crews did not find any occupants inside the home but said they were able to rescue four rabbits. One of the rabbits was lethargic, according to fire crews, but after treatment acted better and was reunited with the other rabbits.

The home's resident was not home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries to firefighters.

In all, 25 firefighters were needed to put the fire out.

The majority of the fire damage was to the exterior of the home with heavy smoke damage.

The cause of the fire was likely burning weeds.
