Smoke could be seen billowing from a “full engulfed” house fire Tuesday morning on Southeast 29th Street, the Cape Coral Police Department said.

Several fire and police crews were dispatched around 10:06 a.m. to the 1100 block of Southeast 29th Street.

All residents were able to leave the structure safety, according to police. Crews were able to extinguish the flames of the fire in about 45 minutes.

The cause of the fire started on the back patio, was electrical and deemed accidental, according to the Cape Coral Fire Department.

The home was “a total loss,” but crews were able to save a motorcycle and a bird’s nest.

People should avoid the area for the next several hours, police said.
