Last night at about 6:55 p.m., Pasco County fire rescue received a call about a structure fire at 14981 Edgewater Circle in Hudson.
According to police, the first crews arrived four minutes later to find a three-story home with heavy fire involvement on the first and second floors going to the third floor.
Due to the rate the fire was spreading, a defensive strategy was immediately deployed. There were no hydrants in the area so a tanker shuttle operation was established.
Strong winds fueled the quick-moving fire and the entire structure was consumed.
It took thirty firefighters nearly an hour to bring the fire under control. The $600,000 home was a total loss. The home was occupied at the time of the fire and one of the occupants was transported to the hospital for treatment.
No firefighters were injured and the cause of the fire still remains under investigation.
