Fire crews battle structure fire at 26456 Charlick Road
This afternoon at 2:48 p.m., Hernando County Fire Rescue (HCFR) responded to a reported structure fire at 26456 Charlick Road in Brooksville. Fire units arrived on scene within seven minutes to find a single family dwelling nearly fully involved.
Crews initially attempted an aggressive interior attack, due to reports that there was one person unaccounted for, but the intensity of the fire required the crews to transition to a defensive attack of the fire. Once the fire was brought under control, HCFR received conformation that all occupants of the home were accounted for and uninjured, however two small dogs have yet to be located.
No injuries to fire crews were reported and the fire is currently under investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
HCFR units on scene included two fire engines, two water tenders, three rescues, one Battalion Chief, one Division Chief and one Brooksville Fire Engine; for a total of 18 personnel on scene.
