At least one resident in the Catalina Towers Apartments has been displaced after a fire broke out inside a unit Thursday afternoon, an official said.
At about 12:10 p.m., Tucson fire crews initially reported smoke and water coming from the door of a second-floor unit at 2475 N. Haskell Drive, near Alvernon Way and Grant Road.
After entering the apartment, crews found two sprinkler heads put out a “bulk” of the fire, according to Joshua Housman, a department spokesman.
Crews then used a fire extinguisher to control the remaining flames at about 12:20 p.m.
The resident was not home and there were no reported injuries, Housman said.
Officials called Red Cross to the scene, but the number of residents displaced was not released.
