A fire on Thursday morning destroyed two homes on Pinal Ave. The cause of the fires is still under investigation. There were no injuries in the fires with the exception of five cats that did not make it out in time. Only one of the structures was occupied.
For one of the structures this is the third time that it has caught fire. About eight years ago a candle started a structure fire on that property. According to Fire Chief Todd Pryor, the owners of both properties plan to demolish the remains of the structures.
Queen Valley and Apache Junction Fire Departments responded to the fire.
