PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Phoenix firefighters are on the scene of two house fires, side-by-side, in a west Phoenix neighborhood.

Fire crews were first dispatched around 9:30 a.m. Monday to the report of a house fire on West Monterey Way, near 67th Avenue and Thomas Road. They arrived to find smoke and flames coming from the roofline of two homes and called for a first-alarm response. More units were then sent to help fight the fires, including additional firefighters from Phoenix, Tolleson and Glendale.

Both fires were extinguished in under 30 minutes. Seven people lived in one of the homes, and no one was hurt. Fire officials say the other house was vacant.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
