Riverview brush fire damages stored boat

RIVERVIEW — Firefighters responded Monday afternoon to a brush fire that scorched a boat in storage and threatened a nearby home, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue said.

The fire was reported at 8121 Revels Road. Several fire crews responded to the blaze. They found a shed and a field of about 1 acre on fire.

Firefighters put out the blaze before it reached a home to the north, but a boat being stored in the property did sustain damage, Fire Rescue said.

No one was injured.
