MESA, AZ - Fire officials say a family is without a home Tuesday evening after a big fire in Mesa.
Mesa fire spokesman Forrest Smith said crews from Gilbert and Tempe helped Mesa fire and medical crews control a house fire on 8th Drive, near Mesa Drive and Southern Avenue.
A man who lives in the home said the fire started on the patio when he was running/servicing his quads around 4:45 p.m., according to Smith.
The man went inside and soon noticed flames coming from the quads, which eventually spread toward the attic, Smith said.
He said the fire was under control in about 20 minutes.
The home is a total loss, Smith said. Two adults and three children have been displaced, but there were no reports of injuries.
