Clearwater condo fire was electrical in nature

CLEARWATER — A Monday afternoon fire that injured a Clearwater firefighter and caused $75,000 to $100,000 in damages to a condominium building has been determined to be electrical in nature. No foul play is suspected in the 4:30 p.m. blaze at Top of the World condominiums, 2427 Rhodesian Drive, which took fire crews more than an hour to extinguish. A new tenant had just moved her belongings into the second-floor unit where the blaze began. Clearwater Fire and Rescue deemed that condo "a complete loss," and said other nearby units sustained structural and water damage. Red Cross is assisting the residents. The unidentified firefighter was released from the hospital Monday and will continue to recover over the next few days.
