A Cape Coral neighborhood was awoken late Monday night by fire crews arriving to fight an electrical blaze that engulfed a condominium.

The fire broke out just after midnight on Southeast 12th Court, just south of Hancock Bridge Parkway.

The owners of the unit where the fire started were not home. According to the Cape Coral Fire Department, it was started by an electrical strip in the unit’s patio, which was near oxygen tanks and gasoline cans.
