PHOENIX -- Phoenix Fire received a call at 3:45 a.m. Sunday morning about a fire occurring at a residence near 33rd Avenue and Cholla Street.

When the first crew arrived four minutes after the call, they found heavy fire coming from the roof.

Officials found one adult female standing outside of the home. She was treated for smoke inhalation and transported to a nearby emergency room.

According to Capt. Jonathan Jacobs, a ruptured natural gas line in the home was feeding the fire. PFD crews were able to contain the leak within the first five minutes.

The fire was put out in a span of 13 minutes, but investigators are still currently working on cause.
