Dog dies in suspicious Largo fire

LARGO — A fire that killed a dog and destroyed a mobile home Wednesday may have been arson, authorities said.

Largo Fire Rescue was called to Blue Skies Mobile Home Park at 614 Woodrow Ave. NW, No. 33, at 12:13 p.m.

Firefighters arrived in less than two minutes, but the home was not salvageable, said Division Chief David Mixson.

An arson dog was called in.

"The dog hit on two spots where an accelerant may have been used," Mixson said.

The home's owner was not at home at the time of the fire. He has not been identified.

A dog died in the fire, Mixson said. No other injuries were reported.

An investigation is ongoing.
