Vista Rd. mobile home fire in Venice

Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC




Shortly after 5 a.m. today (9/20), multiple calls came in for a fire at a residence on Vista Road in the Venice Municipal Mobile Home Park. The 69-year-old female resident was alerted to the blaze, and she and her dog were able to escape the mobile home as it was engulfed in flames. Venice Fire Rescue, Venice Police, Nokomis Fire and Sarasota County Fire responded. The blaze was under control in minutes. The female resident was treated by Rescue 52 for minor injuries related to the fire and released. No other injuries have been reported.


VPD assisted in evacuating surrounding homes in the area. While officials were on scene, a neighboring mobile home started to smoke from radiant heat from the original fire and was quickly extinguished. The occupant of that home and their dog had already been evacuated.


Approximately 3 years ago, VFR’s fire prevention program partnered with the American Red Cross to install smoke detectors in local mobile home parks. This manufactured home on Vista Rd. was the recipient of one of those smoke detectors, which alerted the resident to the fire. Amazingly, the detector was still chirping through the home being fully engulfed and even after the blaze was extinguished.


There are no indications of arson or foul play. The fire is considered accidental with an undetermined origin at this time. A VFR crew will remain at the location this morning for mop up.
