TAMPA -- Two men, a woman and a baby were homeless early Monday after their home at 108 W Knollwood St. caught fire.

Officials said firefighters arrived at the home about 2 a.m. after someone reported smoke and flames coming from the duplex.

They had the fire under control within 20 minutes, and no one was injured.

A Tampa fire marshal said that the fire started in a bedroom; the cause remains under investigation.

The blaze caused an estimated $120,000 damage.

Red Cross workers were assisting the residents.
