The occupants, three adults and a teenager, escaped without serious injury but were taken to a local hospital for smoke inhalation, authorities said. One of the adults also had a burn on his leg, said Lt. Joel Granata of St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue.

Two firefighters also were treated for heat exhaustion.

Firefighters were called to the home, at 1810 Nebraska Ave. NE, about 3:30 a.m. Saturday, Granata said.

The 3,602-square-foot home had been under renovation for two years.

The cause of the fire, which spread to the attic and walls, is still under investigation. It is not considered suspicious, Granata said.
