A fire displaced a family of five Tuesday afternoon on the city's southeast side. No one was injured in the blaze.

The fire was reported by multiple 911-callers and firefighters were dispatched at 1 p.m. to the 7600 block of East Queen Palm Circle, said Capt. Barrett Baker of the Tucson Fire Department.

The neighborhood is north of East Escalante Road and west of South Pantano Road.

When firefighters arrived they saw heavy smoke and flames coming from the garage, and two vehicles in the driveway were on fire, Baker said.

Twenty-one firefighters brought the blaze under control in 19 minutes.

The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family, which includes a 10-month-old infant. No one was home at the time of the fire.

Baker said the fire began in the garage, and spread to the vehicles in the driveway. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation. A damage estimate has not been determined.
