Largo mobile home fire leaves two residents without shelter

LARGO — Two people were displaced by a mobile home fire on Monday afternoon, according to Largo Fire Rescue.

The fire was reported at 3:08 p.m. at Fairway Village Mobile Home Park at 1100 Belcher Road S, officials said. Firefighters were on the scene within four minutes.

Heavy smoke made it difficult for firefighters to locate the source, but by 3:23 p.m. the fire was out, according to Division Chief of Operations David Mixson. No one appears to have been injured in the blaze.

Firefighters are still there, making sure the fire is completely out and investigating the cause. A damage estimate was not available.

The Red Cross was not called in to help. The two residents are being assisted by family members, officials said.
