TAMPA, Fla. — A fire broke out Friday afternoon near the Westshore Yacht Club Condos in Tampa.

It happened in an occupied single-family apartment on top of a garage in the area of Yeats Manor Drive and Olivette Court.

A neighbor noticed the fire, and everybody got out safely.

Tampa Fire Rescue first tried to put out the fire from the inside but was forced to evacuate and attack it by air. Crews used two aerial ladder trucks to spray water from above.

S. West Shore Boulevard was temporarily closed between W. Leila and Wallace avenues.
