FD: 2 try to save teen from San Tan Valley house fire

SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ - Two Good Samaritans called firefighters Thursday thinking a teen with special needs was trapped inside a burning home.

Rural Metro Fire Department spokesman Colin Williams said firefighters initially thought the boy was trapped on the second floor of the home near Hunt Highway and Johnson Ranch Boulevard.

When crews arrived they realized the house was empty and the teen was not at home when the fire broke out.

The boy was reportedly with his mother away from the home when the fire started.

Air15 video showed ambulances and multiple fire trucks parked outside the house.

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

The story is still developing. Stay tuned to ABC15 and ABC15.com for the latest information.
