BOCA RATON, Fla. – Boca Raton Fire Rescue were at the scene of a house fire Wednesday morning that temporarily evicted a mother and her son, according to fire rescue officials.
The fire broke out just before 4:30 a.m. in the rear bedroom of the home, located at 1284 NW 4th Street.
"Heavy smoke and intense flames reaching above the roof were seen coming through the bedroom window on the west side of the residence as firefighters arrived," said Boca Raton Fire Rescue spokesperson Frank Correggio.
According to Correggio, the fire was contained to the bedroom, but the rest of the home suffered an estimated $100,000 in smoke and heat damage.
The owner of the home was the only one in the house at the time of the fire and no one was injured, according to Correggio.
Correggio said the Red Cross was on hand to assist the displaced homeowner and her family.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal.
