CLEARWATER, Fla. - A fire that badly damaged a Clearwater home and left a person and a firefighter injured Sunday is being investigated as "suspicious."
According to Clearwater spokesperson Rob Shaw, four people were in the home when the fire started.
The wife of the homeowner, who was not in the home at the time of the fire, said at the scene that she was told "something" was thrown into the home and triggered the fire.
Shaw did not respond to attempts Sunday to confirm if the fire was arson caused by something thrown into the home.
One person in the home was transported to Morton Plant Hospital for smoke inhalation and a firefighter was burned on his neck by falling debris.
None of the injuries are considered serious.
The home sustained major damages during the fire. The investigation into the fire is ongoing Sunday night.
