Warehouse at Florida College in Temple Terrace scorched by fire of unknown origin

TEMPLE TERRACE — A storage warehouse at Florida College caught fire this afternoon, damaging sporting equipment and office supplies, authorities said.

Firefighters responded to the warehouse at 6820 Temple Terrace Highway just after 5 p.m. Nobody was injured, and the cause hasn't been determined, said Assistant Chief Ian Kemp with the Temple Terrace Fire Department.

The warehouse contained weights and equipment for the school's baseball team, which no longer exists, Kemp said.

It took 19 firefighters from three fire departments about 10 minutes to put out the blaze, which did significant damage to two rooms inside the building, Kemp said.
