A house fire on the city's southside displaced a family of five, Thursday afternoon.

Four people were at the house when the fire broke out, and all made it out safely, said Capt. Barrett Baker, a Tucson Fire Department spokesman.

The fire broke out in the carport of the house in the 700 block of West Calle Rita shortly before 1:30 p.m., said Baker.

The house is located in a neighborhood south of West Valencia Road, and west of South 12th Avenue.

Firefighters were dispatched at 1:21 p.m. and arrived at the house in five minutes. The fire was under control at 1:40 p.m., Baker said.

The family, which includes two teen-agers and an 11-month-old boy, will stay with relatives, said Baker.

The cause of the fire and a damage estimate were not known, Baker said.
