A family of six was temporarily displaced early Tuesday morning when a fire broke out in the carport of their midtown home. 

Shortly before 3 a.m. a 20-year-old man woke up when he smelled smoke and saw a large fire outside his family's home in the 5100 block of East 28th Street, near South Craycroft Road and East 29th Street. 

He woke up his dad and four siblings and they all evacuated the home safely, Capt. Barrett Baker, a Tucson fire spokesman said in a news release. 

Several calls to 911 indicated a truck parked in a carport and the roof were engulfed in flames. 

Firefighters who extinguished the blaze quickly and a brick wall that separated the carport from the home prevented the flames from spreading to the house, the release said. 

Nobody was injured. 

Two vehicles were damaged by the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
