Odessa home burns after busy day for firefighters

ODESSA — A sixth home burned overnight in Hillsborough County following five fires on Sunday.

It happened at about midnight at 9003 Tarawynd Drive in Odessa. It's not known how many people were home at the time. No injuries were reported.

It was the third blaze that Hillsborough County firefighters fought Sunday. Tampa Fire Rescue was also called to three burning homes earlier that day.

Another fire was reported at 404 W Mahony St. in Plant City at about 3 a.m., but when rescuers arrived, they discovered it was a failed arson attempt. Nothing was on fire, and no one was injured.

    Emile Crawford stocks two back-up phone battery chargers these days when she takes her kids to Disney World. But she dare not venture into a theme park without a smart phone app, an accessory becoming as necessary as sunscreen in Florida theme parks.
