The cause of Friday’s fire at the two-bedroom Clearwater home is under investigation. No one was injured. 

Flames tore through the roof of a two-bedroom home at 1428 Pine St. in Clearwater on Friday, but no one was injured.

The fire was reported about 12:45 p.m. by neighbors who saw smoke billowing from the house. Two people who lived there and their pets were not at home when the fire broke out.

Genesis Gutierrez, 16, who lives down the block, watched from her porch as dozens of firefighters and police officers blocked off the street.

"I heard the trucks, and I rushed outside," she said. "I wanted to make sure the fire didn't spread."

Firefighters had the blaze under control in about 20 minutes. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
