WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) - Fire officials in Florida say 40 guests made it safely out of a building where fire broke out at Saddlebrook Resort near Tampa.

Pasco County spokesman Doug Tobin said in a news release that the fire started early Thursday morning in a 16-unit, two story building at the resort.
