Manatee County, Florida

Wednesday Sept 14th

At 17:41, Southern Manatee Fire Dept was dispatched to a reported house fire at 6951 Cumberland Terrace in the University Park Sub-Division. 911 Calls reported fire through the roof of a 1 story unoccupied home. E-351 & Batt-3 (Herb Smith) were first to arrive, confirming a working fire.

Fire Conditions and the potential of the roof collapsing forced crews to be pulled from the home and begin a exterior attack. The Fire is curently under investigation but preliminary reports are pointing to a lightning strike as the cause of the fire. 3 Engines, 1 Tower Ladder and various support staff responded to this call.
