ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

Fire Rescue investigators want to know why a family waited several hours to call for help after their home caught fire.

It happened on 20th Avenue South in St. Petersburg on Wednesday.

Investigators say it happened in the home's kitchen, but the family didn't call 911 until 1 a.m. this morning – after the fire had been smoldering for hours.

We're told there's damage to the kitchen and the attic, but everyone's OK.
