*** REPORT FROM THE LINE OF FIRE ***


Fatal House Fire
Manatee County, Fla

Early Fri morning Dec 14th at 03:18 Southern Manatee FD
was dispatched to a reported house fire w/entrapment at
5012 17th St E. Crews, under the direction of B/C Tim
Berry, arrived ar 03:22 to find a 50 year old wooden
house, fully invovled & a 47yo female & 18yo male laying
outside the house suffering from burns & smoke
inhilation. Both those victims were airlifted to Tampa
General by Bayflight 1 & 3. Do the intensity of the
advancing fire, crews could not locate the 2 males that
neighbors reported were still in the house, both
subsequently died. Both victims were found laying next
to each other in the back of the house. Officials
believe both were trying to escape but unable to due to
the heavy smoke/fire conditions. Investigators from the
Southern Manatee FD and State Fire Marshalls Office
believe unattended cooking was the source of the fire.
A C.I.S.D Meeting was scheduled at 05:30 at SMFD St.1
for the first arriving crews and EMS paramedics. This
is a County Wide policy for any Fire Realted Death.

Units that responded were:

E-311, E-321, L-319 & B/C 3.

E-331 originally was relocated to SMFD St.1 for coverage
but sent to a local shopping plaza to handle the L.Z.
for Bayflight. They were then sent to the fire scene to
relieve the crew from E-311 so they could attend the
Dibriefing.
