EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — El Paso firefighters doused a fire in Central El Paso shortly after being dispatched to a residence on Tuesday night.

Fire crews traveled to the 1000 block of Arizona Avenue to battle a blaze that took the attic of a residence along the street. A resident and two dogs were evacuated from the home.

Officials say the house partially collapsed and crews are still looking to manage the blaze. No injuries were reported.

Earlier Tuesday, firefighters in East El Paso County fought a large blaze that produced black clouds of smoke that could be seen for miles. Crews have since stopped the fire.
