A family of five has been displaced after a large fire at their Mesa home.
Crews from Mesa, Gilbert and Tempe responded to the fire Tuesday afternoon at a residence near Mesa Drive and Southern.
The resident of the home told Mesa Fire the blaze started on the patio when he was working on his quads. The flames then lapped up to the eaves and started the attic on fire.
No one was hurt, but the house is a complete loss.
The fire was knocked down in about 20 minutes. Two adults and three children are now looking for another place to stay.
The fire department is reminding homeowners to have fire detectors. The investigation is ongoing.
