Fire investigators are looking into what caused a mysterious house fire in Rancho El Dorado earlier this week.

Sunday, the Maricopa Fire/Medical Department responded to a fire at a home near the intersection of Cahill and Kirkland Drives at approximately 7 p.m.

“As crews arrived on scene, they found smoke coming from the structure and found fire in the rear of the home contained to a room off the patio inside the building, with damage to (the) patio outside as well,” said Brad Pitassi, MFMD spokesman.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze and no injuries were reported. Neighbors said they believed the house was vacant at the time.

The origin of the fire is under investigation, Pitassi added.
