CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A fire at a home on Palm Tree Boulevard in Cape Coral Thursday night appears to be electrical.

The homeowner was not there when the flames broke out in the living room. The smoke and flames did about $80,000 in damage and the house has been deemed unlivable.

WINK News has learned one firefighter was sent to the hospital with a back injury after he slipped and fell onto his air tank.
