SARASOTA COUNTY - A woman sleeping narrowly made it out of her home, after waking up to find the house on fire.

It happened at about 7:45 Sunday evening at a home on Bayshore Road.

The home has 5 occupants, but only one person was home at the time of the fire.

Sarasota County firefighters say they think they contained most of the damage to the attic, except for some smoke and water damage.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
