TAMPA — A woman has been taken to the hospital after a mobile home caught fire in Tampa.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue units responded to the mobile home early Monday morning as heavy smoke and fire were coming out a window. It took them about 10 minutes to extinguish the blaze.

A woman inside the home was taken to the hospital and is listed in fair condition.

Investigators ruled the fire was accidental and was caused when the home owner was smoking and an oxygen line caught fire.
