BRADENTON, FL - On Sunday afternoon, June 2nd, the City of Bradenton FD was dispatched to a structure fire on 3rd Street West. While enroute a heavy smoke column was visible. On arrival the single-family structure was fully involved and two residents were in front of the structure with third degree burns.

Reports that the house blew up came in from blocks away. The blast sent glass and parts of the house throughout the neighborhood. As the first due engine started pulling lines the power lines from the house fell on the engine.
