Tampa crews fight fire at Ybor City bank


Tampa Fire Rescue crews extinguished a fire at an Ybor City bank this afternoon.

At 4:58 p.m., crews were called to SunTrust Bank, 1701 E. 7th Ave., after smoke and flames were seen coming from the roof of the drive-thru area. Firefighters were able to use ladders to access the roof and quickly extinguish the blaze.

The fire was ruled accidental and blamed on construction work being done to the building, fire officials said.

There were no injuries as result of the fire, and there were no customers inside at the time, fire officials said.

Bank official said the branch will resume normal operations on Thursday.
