MATLACHA, Fla. - Investigators will be looking for the cause of an overnight fire in Matlacha Tuesday morning.
An apparently vacant home in the 12000 block of Boat Shell Drive went up in flames at about 2:00 am. Matlacha firefighters report they could see the fire as they left the station because it was reaching so high into the sky at the time. Within in an hour they had the fire out and under control.
Nobody got hurt. The fire Marshall will be on scene after sunrise to investigate the cause.
