Midtown carport fire forces family from home

A midtown family was forced from their home at midnight Thursday, when a fire destroyed their detached carport, the Tucson Fire Department reported.

The accidental blaze in the 300 block of East Speedway Boulevard, which burned two vehicles and a boat, was attributed to wiring and caused an estimated $100,000 damage, TFD spokeswoman Capt. Trish Tracy said in a news release.

Three homes were without power for about an hour when the fire burned power lines, Tracy said.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
