Seven escape early morning Tampa house fire

TAMPA — An adult and six children safely escaped a fire in their home early Friday, fire officials said.

The fire broke out shortly before 1 a.m. in a single-story home in the 1400 block of Annie Street. Smoke detectors alerted the family to the fire, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.

A large portion of the home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. The fire was quickly extinguished.

Investigators determined an electrical failure in a wall of the master bedroom was to blame.
