Hernando County Fire Rescue (HCFR) units were dispatched to Sand Hill Scout Reservation located at 11210 Cortez Blvd in Spring Hill early yesterday morning for reports of a structure fire. Flames and heavy smoke were already through the roof and the structure was partially collapsed upon arrival of the first engine company at 7:59am.

Firefighters immediately set up a defensive attack to prevent the fire from spreading to the surrounding woodlands of the 1,300-acre property. Crews confirmed there were no occupants in the structure at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is being investigated by the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

HCFR responded to the scene with 2 Battalion Chiefs, 2 Engines, 2 Rescues, 1 Ladder Truck, 2 Water Tenders, and 1 Brush Truck.
