Investigation underway after fire guts Seffner home

SEFFNER — An investigation was underway Thursday morning following a fire that gutted a Seffner home.

The blaze was reported about 5 a.m. at 2338 S Merrily Circle. When firefighters arrived, they found the single-story home engulfed in flames. Crews quickly extinguished the fire.

Neighbors told firefighters that four people had been renting the home and staying there with their dog, fire officials said. But after the fire was put out, an initial search turned up no sign of anyone inside. Firefighters were unable to reach any of the residents by phone.

An investigation remains ongoing.
