Fire near houses in Tropical Gulf Acres, Punta Gorda

Published: Dec 25, 2013 2:46 AM EST

This morning there was a fast moving fire moving through the back end of Tropical Gulf Acres while I was on my way to visit family in the neighborhood. I looked to have started right behind one of the houses on that block and was moving rather fast. Even at the distance I was from the flames I could feel the heat. It was also jumping further down the street as well. At the time of this recording 2 engines were already on sceen. I wasn't able to stick around to see it put out. I do hope the famiies affected are okay though and that their homes were undamaged. It looked like they might be okay but as I said I wasn't able to stick around and see that they were okay.
