PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Two families were displaced after a water heater fire re-ignited at their Phoenix condominium complex Friday morning.

The fire in the area of 44th Street and Baseline Road was originally reported at 3:10 a.m. and caused little damage to the house, according to a Phoenix firefighter.

But firefighters had to return after the flames shot up again just before 8 a.m.

No injuries were reported.

A family with two adults and four children and another family of two adults and two children will be provided shelter, clothing and food as needed, said Trudy Thompson Rice of the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter.

No other information was immediately available.
