PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Pasco County Fire Rescue crews battled a blaze at 16517 Albright Ave. Thursday evening.
“Upon arrival crews found a double wide mobile home with heavy smoke and flame showing,” officials said. “Crews attacked the fire and contained it to the kitchen and dining room area.”
The home owner suffered smoke inhalation and was treated on scene but refused transport to a hospital, officials said. A firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and was treated. That firefighter has already been released back to full duty.
The fire was caused by an unattended deep fryer. There were 16 personnel on scene, in addition to two engines, two tankers, two rescues, an air truck and two chiefs.
The home is a total loss, according to Pasco County Fire Rescue.
All occupants of the home “self-rescued,” officials said.
