Citizen Staff Writer



A fire that left a South Side man homeless Sunday was set, a Tucson Fire Department spokeswoman said.

No one was injured in the 11:35 a.m. fire in the 1000 block of East 28th Street, Capt. Tricia Tracy said.

The fire, set in roofing materials leaning against the home, did an estimated $70,000 damage, Tracy said.

The man who lives alone in the home was away when the fire was set, she said.

Neighbors called 911 after spotting smoke coming from the home, she said.

The fire destroyed the garage, a storage room and a bedroom, Tracy said.

There are no suspects, she said.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
