One person was taken to the hospital as a result of a garage fire in Spring Hill.
Hernando County Fire and Emergency Services (HCFES) Public Information Officer (PIO) Kenneth D. Wannen said that just after 1 p.m. on Nov. 3, crews responded to a call about a residential fire in the 10,000 block of Tassel Street. During the call, a neighbor reported seeing fire emanating from a garage, heavy smoke from the eves, and hearing people screaming inside the attached residence.
At the scene, the HCFES crew was able to contain the blaze to the area of its origin and extinguish it within 11 minutes.
One occupant of the home was transported by helicopter to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries related to the fire.
The cause and origin of the blaze are under investigation by the Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office.
