Family of 4 injured in Sarasota house fire

- A family of four has been rushed to the hospital following an early morning house fire.

The Sarasota County Fire Department says the fire broke out at a home in the 3200 block of 27th Parkway, injuring at least two adults and two children-- including a 3-year-old --who were all inside at the time.

A pet Chihuahua was also found at the scene. They say it has a microchip, and will remain in the care of Animal Services until it can return home.

A state fire marshal and officials from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office have joined the investigation.

The cause of the fire remains unknown.
