BRANDON — A fire Tuesday night on the front porch of an apartment drove out two adults and a child, authorities said.
The fire was reported about 9:15 p.m. at an apartment at 1850 Providence Lakes Blvd.
The fire was quickly doused and the three inside the unit escaped unharmed, according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue. But there was fire and water damage to a bedroom wall.
The Red Cross was assisting the tenants, described by Fire Rescue only as two adults and a small child, with finding shelter.
The fire was determined to be accidental, the agency said.
