NEW PORT RICHEY — Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park was evacuated Tuesday afternoon while crews battled a fire on the property.
Pasco Fire Rescue said a maintenance shed that stored county equipment caught fire just after 4:30 p.m. at the New Port Richey park. There was fuel and at least one vehicle inside the shed, which authorities described as a "fully involved" fire.
No one was injured, emergency dispatchers said. It was too early to tell what started the fire and how much it caused in damages.
