It's so hot at Sycamore Creek - it's flaming

Sycamore Creek, one of the apartment complexes east of Ridgepointe where I live, had a unit catch on fire tonight.

It happened while I was taking my early evening nap. But, thanks to the amazing Twitter followers I have on @whatsuptucson, I was alerted and able to walk over to the east side of Ridgepointe and take a picture over the wall of the firefighters while they were still on scene.

According to, neighbors noticed an apartment on fire while the resident of that unit wasn't home, and kept the fire from spreading using fire extinguishers until firefighters arrived.

From what I understand, one unit was heavily damaged, another had smoke damage.

I don't know what the cause was and I'm glad no one was hurt. On a side note, fire trucks excite me.
