Fire Guts Tallahassee Townhouse

By  | 

A 22-year-old man and his roommate have no place to call home after their town home was gutted in an overnight fire off of West Tharpe Street.

One of the men says he came home around 4:30 Monday morning to find several firefighters battling the blaze.

Investigators say it started next to the water heater, but the cause of the blaze is still unknown.

No one was home at the time, but a dog did suffer smoke inhalation. Damage is estimated at about $100,000.
