Oneco, FL - As truck checks and house chores were just beginning on February 21st, a call for a structure fire came in on 63rd Ave. East.
On arrival companies found heavy black smoke and fire pushing through the roof of the vacant nautical store. As firefighters made their way around to the 'C' side, they found a large recreational vehicle on fire, which was tucked between the buildings.
The occupants made it out uninjured along with the family pets. The fire was held to the recreational vehicle, with no extension to the main structure.
