Fire Leaves Family Homeless

It was a terrifying morning for a Tallahassee woman as she gathered up her children to flee a burning home.

Firefighters say flames erupted in the bathroom of the mobile home on Van Delia Road around 11 a.m.

Kenyatta Simmons says she smelled smoke and when she went to investigate realized the house was on fire. She grabbed her baby and young son and fled.

They are okay, but they've lost everything. The trailer was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighters got there.

Firefighters say the cause is undetermined, but may be electrical as Simmons noticed flickering lights in the bathroom before the fire.
