Fire ruins Tampa home Sunday morning

TAMPA — A family woke to find their house in flames early Sunday morning, but escaped unharmed, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.

Crews responded to the fire just before 5 a.m. at 2525 W Cherry St., where flames were seen coming from the second floor of the two-story house. The fire was under control in a little over an hour and no injuries were reported.

The house has two apartments. A family was sleeping in the downstairs apartment when the fire broke out, Fire Rescue said. They were awakened by the sound of glass breaking and were able to get out safely. No one was home in the upstairs apartment.

An exact cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but investigators said it does not appear suspicious.

The two apartments are a total loss, with damages estimated to be at least $50,000.
