Oneco, FL - Southern Manatee Fire District responded to a reported structure fire on 60th Ave., March 14th. On arrival, crews found a large shed in the rear of a duplex well involved. The shed contained fertilizer, and dry conditions in the state caused the fire to spread and start a brush fire, along with a few trees. One civilian received minor burns and was treated on scene. The fire took out a power line running through the rear of the yard, knocking out power to the area.
