Woman injured in St. Petersburg house fire

ST. PETERSBURG — A 60-year-old woman was injured after a one-story home caught fire Monday morning, according to St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue.

The unidentified woman was taken to Bayfront Medical Center for possible smoke inhalation. Her condition was not considered life-threatening, said fire rescue spokesman Lt. Joel Granata.

Granata said firefighters found the woman sitting against a wall near the back door of her home. She was semiconscious, he said.

The fire broke out at the 2901 Eighth St. S home about 8:04 a.m., and crews had the blaze under control about 10 minutes later.

Flames were contained to the linen closet and bedroom, Granata said. The damage was estimated at about $20,000.

Granata said the home didn't have any working smoke detectors.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
