NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla.- Firefighters believe an early Tuesday morning mobile home fire is suspicious, resulting in the state Fire Marshal’s Office being called out.

Authorities responded to the 7800 block of Ebson Drive at about 3 a.m. Upon arrival, smoke was seen coming out of the front door of the home as well as small flames. Two people were in the home and were able to escape without injury, authorities said.

Crews were able to put out the fire quickly. The home suffered minimal to moderate damage to the kitchen.

Authorities believe the fire may have started outside the home, which is why state officials were called to the scene.
