Firefighters battle early morning blaze at Wimauma mobile home

WIMAUMA — Firefighters were battling a mobile home blaze early Tuesday in Wimauma.

The fire broke out sometime before 3 a.m. in the mobile home at 3330 Downing St., near U.S. 301, according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue reports. Arriving crews found the home fully engulfed in flames.

Authorities were using water tanks to shuttle water to the fire due to the long distance to the nearest hydrant, officials said. The extent of the damage had yet to be determined. Further details were not immediately available.
