SARASOTA - A Gillespie Park family is trying to figure out how to move on after a fire reduced their home to rubble.

By the time crews got to the scene early Wednesday morning, the fire fully engulfed the home on 10th Street and Osprey Avenue. The house was completely gutted by the flames.

Three adults and one child got out with no injuries.

The Red Cross is helping the displaced family.
