A mobile home kitchen fire displaced a family of three on the city's south side Friday afternoon.

Tucson Fire Department firefighters were dispatched at 3:50 p.m. after multiple 911-callers reported the blaze in the 5300 block of South Park Avenue, said Capt. Chris Jurvig.

The neighborhood is south of East Irvington Road. No one was injured in the blaze.

Firefighters arrived in five minutes and found flames and smoke coming out from the front of the home. The family was outside the home, but told firefighters their dog was still inside, Jurvig said.

Twenty-four firefighters brought the fire under control quickly and rescued the dog, which was found hiding under a couch, said Jurvig.

The cause of the kitchen fire was under investigation. Damage was estimated at $5,000, Jurvig said.

The family was staying with relatives.
