TAMPA — A 54-year-old man injured in a recreational vehicle fire at the Bay Bayou RV Resort has died, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.
Neighbors helped Elfton Mace get out of his 28-foot travel trailer after the fire broke out at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. It took Hillsborough firefighters about 10 minutes to extinguish the blaze.
Mace had lived alone at the park for about a year, according to the resort's manager.
The cause of the blaze at 8443 Manatee Bay Drive remains under investigation, fire officials said.
