Brandon apartment fire displaces two adults and a child

BRANDON, Fla. (970 WFLA) - An apartment fire in Brandon Tuesday evening displaced two adults and a small child.

Firefighters said it happened around 9:15 p.m. on the 1800 block of Providence Lakes Boulevard.

When crews arrived, firefighters said they found a fire on the porch of the apartment unit and quickly put it out before it did any more damage to the unit or spread into another part of the building.

Firefighters said there is fire and water damage to a wall that divides a bedroom and the porch.

Both adults and the child were able to get out safely and the Red Cross is assisting.

A Hillsborough County fire investigator determined the fire was accidental, officials said.
