Moon Lake, FL - On January 9th, PCFR Firefighters from Battalion 1 and Battalion 2 responded to the 9200 block of Lake Drive in Moon Lake for a reported residential structure fire. When firefighters arrived, they reported a double-wide mobile home, a car, and a fence on fire. Firefighters started their initial fire attack and confirmed that everyone was out of the house. Firefighters were able to knock the fire down in approximately 20 minutes. A Tanker Task Force was requested due to the lack of fire hydrants in the area. Command on the scene called for our partners at the American Red Cross to assist with clothing and housing for the displaced residents. In all, two adults, two children, and two dogs required assistance. Thankfully, there were no injuries reported, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
