No one in­jured in fire that de­stroyed home, truck

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Local - By Wayne K. Rous­tan

There were no re­ports of in­juries de­spite the flames that con­sumed most of a Fort Lauderdale house and a pickup truck parked out­side, fire of­fi­cials said.

It hap­pened about 5 p.m. Fri­day in a sin­gle fam­ily home in the 1100 bock of North­west 17th Street.

The smoke could be seen blocks away.

Fire­fight­ers had it un­der con­trol quickly but the cause of the blaze was un­known. Fire mar­shals are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

The Broward County chap­ter of the Red Cross was help­ing the three dis­placed adults find tem­po­rary ac­com­mo­da­tions.
