A woman was taken to the hospital after suffering from smoke inhalation from a midtown fire Wednesday.

The woman, in her 30s, escaped from her home in the 4600 block of East Duncan Street, after the fire was reported at 3:48 p.m., said Capt. Barrett Baker, a Tucson Fire Department spokesman.

The house is west of North Swan Road and south of East Grant Road.

A passerby called 911 after seeing smoke and flames coming from the duplex, Baker said.

Firefighters arrived in three minutes and it took 12 minutes to bring the fire under control, Baker said. He said 23 firefighers fought the fire.

A bedroom sustained heavy damage. Three people were displaced from the home, Baker said.

The fire's origin and cause are under investigation. No damage estimate was determined.
