FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Fire broke out in the attic of a Fort Myers home early Tuesday, where nine people appeared to be staying.

It happened around 2:45 a.m. in the 1500 block of Brookhill Drive.

Fox 4's Breaking News Tracker was first on the scene.  We found five women and four young children that were able to get out of the house safely.

Fire crews are still investigating, but tell Four in Your Corner they believe the cause is electrical.
