TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Six residents are back in their homes this morning, after an early morning fire at a senior living community on Orange Grove. 

Northwest Fire crews were at the scene of the Amber Lights fire earlier this morning.  According to NWFD Capt. Adam Goldberg the fire began on the first floor of an electrical building in the complex. 

Towels, used to clean up chemicals were the apparent cause of the fire, according to fire officials.  Sprinklers in the building helped keep the fire from spreading and put the flames out. 

No injuries were reported, according to NWFD officials; the six residents closest to where the fire started had been evacuated before firefighters arrived.  One building was without power after the fire, but it has since been restored, according to officials.

There is no estimate yet on fire damage, though there was extensive water damage.
