TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson firefighters battled a late night fire that displaced four people, including two children, Sunday night. 

Crews responded to the fire in the 2300 block of East Virginia just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday, according to Capt. Barrett Baker with the Tucson Fire Department.  

The cause of the fire is an unspecified electrical malfunction of an electric water heater. The damages are estimated to cost $40,000.
