Firefighters battle blaze in northeast Tampa

TAMPA — A single-story home was destroyed in an afternoon house fire at 6908 Bream St. Thursday, not far from E Sligh Avenue.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue got a call about the blaze at 4:11 p.m. By 5 p.m., Capt. Bruce Delk said firefighters had the fire under control. No one was injured.

A plume of smoke was visible from downtown, rising over the northeastern part of the city for about 20 minutes.

Delk said the fire is under investigation. It appears to have started at the rear building, he said. Investigators don't believe anyone was home when it started.

Tampa Fire Rescue assisted with efforts to extinguish the one-alarm fire.
