Firefighters put out blaze at mobile home near Plant City

PLANT CITY — A fire that broke out Monday morning in a mobile home sent one person to the hospital with minor injuries, according to Hillsborough County fire officials.

The fire was reported about 10:18 a.m. at 3713 Bruton Road, authorities said. When firefighters arrived, they found the home engulfed in flames.

A lack of fire hydrants in the area prompted crews to shuttle water to the mobile home from tanker trucks, officials said. The blaze was quickly extinguished.

One person was hospitalized with injuries officials described as minor. The home's residents declined housing assistance from the American Red Cross.

The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
