Five people displaced by house fire in Clearwater

Five people were displaced from their home after a fire in Clearwater Friday evening.

At 7:36 p.m., firefighters were summoned to 2672 Morningside Drive, where they found a single-family home on fire. The blaze had started in a back room. Firefighters contained the fire to that room and had it out by 7:55 p.m., city officials said. The home had heavy smoke damage throughout and the five people living there were displaced.

Three people were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation but declined to be taken to the hospital, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
