Fire Burns Out Vehicle, Sparks Four Acre Brush Fire

November 29, 2014

An early morning fire is under investigation near Walnut Hill that left a vehicle completely burned out and blackened several acres along a dirt road.

The fire was reported about 3:55 a.m. Saturday  in a very remote area on North Pineville Road between Arthur Brown Road and Nokomis Road. The vehicle, which appeared to a late model GMC Arcadia SUV, was completed burned to the shell and the fire out by the time firefighters were notified. The fire also sparked a four acre brush fire that firefighters fought through the early morning hours.

The Florida Division of Forestry was called to plow a line around and contain the brush fire. The vehicle fire is under investigation by the Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office.

The Walnut Hill Station of Escambia Fire Rescue responded to the blaze. There were no injuries reported.
