JIM DAMASKE | Times

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.

  1. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.

    Bars & Spirits

    Two Henrys Brewing Company is a unique entity in the Tampa Bay brewing scene, due to both its status as the only brewery in Plant City, as well as its location on a 27-acre working farm, which also includes a winery.

  5. Bob Buckhorn: Expanding homestead exemption will endanger Tampa's progress

    Columns

    In the years leading up to my taking office, Tampa families experienced some of the hardest times in recent history. Homes were lost, jobs were cut, and optimism for the future waned.

    Critics say expanding the homestead exemption for Florida property owners will strain the resources of local governments as they recover from the Great Recession.[SKIP O'ROURKE   |   Times, 2005]
