PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- A 100-year-old unoccupied structure burned to the ground shortly before 9:00 a.m. on the 45550 block of Farabee Road. Officials have determined the fire was electrical in nature.
No one was injured.
The fire sparked a brush fire nearby, which was quickly controlled.
The property belongs to Farabee Cattle Company. The family who owns the property says the structure that was destroyed had sentimental value and was the original home when the property was first developed. Even though it was abandoned, there was still power running to it.
