Tallahassee Fire Department Press Release
At 6:40 pm., five units from the Tallahassee Fire Department responded to the report of a house fire on the 1900 block of Raa Avenue.
The first arriving unit saw smoke on arrival and found fire in the laundry room, which they were able to contain it to after a quick attack, though there was smoke damage in other parts of the home.
A search of the house confirmed that none of the residents were present at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.
The origin of the fire appears to have been electrical in nature and is currently under investigation. Damages are estimated to be $30,000. The American Red Cross was called to assist the residents.
