Tampa, Florida -- A family of six, two adults and four children, were displaced after a fire destroyed one of the bedrooms in their home Monday afternoon.

Hillsborough Fire Rescue says when crews arrived at the home in the 14300 block of 18th Street North they saw heavy smoke and fire coming from a bedroom window. It took firefighters 10 minutes to put out the fire and prevented further damage to the home, however, as you can see from the photo, the bedroom was destroyed.

Investigators say the cause of the fire was electrical and accidental in nature.

The Red Cross was called to help the family -- due to the home sustaining smoke and water damage -- with food, shelter and clothing.
