ANTHEM, AZ - Fire officials say another home adjacent to an earlier massive house fire started to burn Friday morning in Anthem.
According to Daisy Mountain fire spokesman Dan Jarrett, a neighbor first reported the initial fire around 5 a.m. near Interstate 17 and Anthem Way.
The initial fire burned down a 3,000-square foot home located on W. Summit Walk Court.
The second house at an adjacent location was hit with embers and caught fire hours later.
Crews immediately put out the flames.
Earlier around 6:30 a.m., Air15 video showed five fire engines working to keep the flames contained at the initial house fire.
The roof completely collapsed at that house.
Smoke was seen hovering over the neighborhood for a few blocks.
Jarrett said the homeowners were not in the first burning house at the time.
A small fire had started in that house Thursday while a plumber was working on pipes in the garage, he said. The fire spread into the attic.
The homeowners were relocated to a hotel overnight, but they thought all hot spots were extinguished in the home.
The total cost in damages in unknown at this time.
