Local Pasco Firefighters Injured Fighting House Fire

According to Bay News 9: Three firefighters suffered minor injuries while battling a fire at a Land O’ Lakes home Saturday night, authorities said.

Pasco County firefighters responded to 4048 Cox Drive Land O Lakes at 10 p.m. and found flames coming from the roof and back of a single-story home.

Twenty-seven firefighters from six stations worked on the fire, which took several hours to completely extinguish because of the age of the home.

The three firefighters who sustained minor injuries were taken to a local hospital. Two were treated and released, and the third was kept for observation.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.

We send our wishes for a speedy recovery to the members of Pasco Fire Rescue involved.
