House fire displaces Plant City family

PLANT CITY — A home went up in flames early Thursday, displacing a Plant City family.

The family members woke after midnight to the sound of smoke detectors, fire officials said. All got outside safely. A call was placed to 911. Firefighters arrived to find smoke and flames emanating from the single-family home.

Crews arranged water shuttle operations to fight the flames as there were no fire hydrants in the area, officials said. The fire was quickly brought under control. No one was injured.

A fire investigator determined the blaze was accidental, but the exact cause was not specified. The American Red Cross assisted the family with finding temporary shelter.
