BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Sad story on Christmas Eve, as a Boca Raton family has been displaced following a devastating house fire.
According to Boca Raton Fire Rescue: “At approximately 5:20pm Boca Raton Firefighters responded to a report of a structure fire at 818 NW 7 Street. Family members were home and smelled smoke coming from the garage. When they opened the door they noticed the fire. They shut the door and immediately exited the home running to a neighbor’s house who called 9-1-1. Upon arrival firefighters were met with heavy smoke and intense flames coming from the garage area.
Crews attacked the fire, brought it under control and extinguished it. Fire extended into the ceiling above the garage where there was also significant damage. The family was not able to return to the home this evening. Fire officials estimate the damage at $100,000.00. The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal.”
