House fire damages two homes near 28th Ave & Camelback Rd

Posted: Updated:

"It started going boom, boom" said Charlie Lay who was working near 28th Avenue and Camelback when billowing smoke and the sound of explosions caught his attention.

"It caught that tree on fire and there were flames probably 30, 40 feet in the air and it was going pretty good" said Lay.

He called 911 and within 3 minutes firefighters were on scene. But the flames moved fast spreading to the home next door.

Corina Rocha was on her way to school, she spotted the smoke and jumped in to help. "We were knocking on their doors and we got him to wake up and he was getting his sister that was in a wheelchair out too so everyone got out just in time. "

Firefighters believe the fire started in a garage or storage area. "We have a fire investigator on scene who's trying to pinpoint why this fire got so large so quickly" said Captain Jonathan Jacobs with Phoenix Fire. 

One dog was killed in the fire but thankfully no residents were hurt.

"I feel like a hero today" said Rocha.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.

    A tiny new spy device aims to automatically transcribe and Tweet overheard conversations. It's called Conversnitch.  Brian House and Kyle McDonald are behind the eavesdropping device.  They say it bridges the gap between (presumed) private physical space and public space online.
