SWEETWATER, Fla. - A Sweetwater mobile home caught fire early Tuesday morning in the area of Northwest 3rd Street and 11th Avenue.

Authorities say five people were inside the home when smoke started coming from a closet at the back of the house.

Kevin Fumero, who lives at the mobile home, was awake at the time and said he woke up his family to rush them outside to safety.

"Immediately, I saw smoke coming through the a/c vents," said Fumero.

Fumero said clothes and photo albums were lost in the fire.

There were no injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
