Firefighters had their hands full Wednesday night battling a house fire in Mesa.
Mesa Fire Department spokesman Forrest Smith said the fire started around 7:30 p.m near Guadalupe and Dobson Roads.
Smith said a woman heard a popping noise on her back patio and noticed her home was on fire.
Officials said the fire went defensive when it spread to the attic. Both Mesa and Tempe fire crews worked to put out the blaze.
Smith said there were no injuries. The Red Cross is assisting five people who were displaced by the fire.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
