Fire destroys house in Spring Hill

SPRING HILL — Fire destroyed a house at 4251 Dristol Ave. on Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters received a call about 2:20 p.m. and arrived minutes later to find flames engulfing the rear of the Florida-style ranch home at Dristol Avenue and St. Augustine Road, said Spring Hill Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Kevin Carroll. Within moments, flames were shooting from a skylight.

"It was definitely up in the attic for a while," Carroll said.

The source of the blaze was not immediately clear, and the fire marshal was investigating, Carroll said.

It was also unclear if anyone was home at the time, but no injuries were reported.

Property records show the house is owned by Joseph and Barbara Berrios and is valued at $33,160 due to confirmed sinkhole activity.
