Two people were rushed to Tampa General's burn unit and are in critical condition after a suspicious house fire in Tampa. Shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday morning, police and fire units responded to a call about a house fire in the 3000 block of E. Ida St. when they arrived they found a 58-year-old man in the front yard and a 51-year-old woman in the back yard both with severe burns. A 53-year-old man escaped the home safely and was uninjured. According to investigators the two men live at the home but the woman does not. Due to the suspicious nature of the incident the arson task force was called out to the scene to investigate. At this point the incident appears to be the result of a domestic dispute.
