Cedar Hammock, FL - As temperatures hit above 90 degrees late Saturday afternoon, May 30th, a call for a structure fire came in to Manatee County Dispatch reporting a fire in a large storage building off 21 Street. As units responded a large plume of black smoke filled the sky from the already well involved building. Once on scene firefighters stretched long lays of hose through yards to access the fire building. The fire actually burned through a fence giving firefighters access to the building. The fire also ignited some brush and trees.
