SUV fire damages Brandon Vital Statistics Office

BRANDON — The Brandon Vital Statistics Office will temporarily close while workers repair damage to the building caused by a vehicle fire Thursday, officials from the Florida Department of Health said.

It will reopen at 8 a.m. Wednesday, officials said.

The fire started about 11 a.m. after a woman parked in front of the office building at 212 S Moon Ave., according to Hillsborough Fire Rescue. Smoke and fire erupted from the SUV's engine and the flames spread to the front of the building.

Fire crews arrived and put out the blaze within 10 minutes, officials said. No one was injured, officials said, and damage was limited to the outside of the building.

People needing birth or death certificates can visit the University Area Vital Statistics Office at 13601 N 22nd St. in Tampa.
