Firefighters battle house fire in Sun City West

SUN CITY, AZ - High winds and a limited water supply made it difficult for firefighters battling a house fire in Sun City Tuesday.

Sun City West fire chief Tim Van Scooter said the fire started around 3:30 p.m. near 160th Avenue and Jomax Road.

Scooter said there is no water supply in the area so firefighters were forced to work with just their own.

Air15 video showed billowing white smoke coming from the roof as crews worked to extinguish the last few hot spots throughout the home.

Scooter said two residents of the home are being treated for smoke inhalation.

Crews are still investigating how the blaze started.
