Gusting winds are being blamed for spreading fire to the attic of a home in Spring Hill. The fire originated with a car parked in the garage of the home. The higher-than-normal winds were part of a weather event that brought frigid temperatures to Hernando County this past weekend.

The Hernando County Fire and Emergency Services (HCFES) said in a written statement that just after 4 p.m. on Jan. 29, crews responded to a call reporting that a car located in a garage attached to a residence on 11000 block of Norvell Road had caught fire and that the fire had spread to the attic of the home. The caller left the residence before HCFES crews arrived.

Upon arrival, crews found the garage and residence engulfed in fire and heavy smoke. Due to extensive damage, the home was declared a total loss, the HCFES statement said.

The Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the incident.
