Four dead in fire at Florida home of former tennis pro James Blake
Investigators have confirmed that Blake rented the property to someone else and was not there when firefighters arrived, police said.
A 911 caller reported an explosion and fire at the home at 5:45 a.m, a sheriff's department statement said. The house, in the exclusive Avila Golf and Country Club, continued to smolder Wednesday afternoon.
Investigators from the sheriff's department and the county fire marshal were trying to determine the cause of the blaze and how the four people died, officials said. The sheriff's department is still trying to identify the bodies.
Blake, 34, who retired in 2013, reached the semi-finals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
