Intense fire at North Fort Myers mobile home park
Firefighters responded to a structure fire in a North Fort Myers mobile home park on Tuesday. There were high flames and still a lot of unanswered questions.
The fire caused a large scene and all of Jose Gaspar Dr. in Buccaneer Estates was blocked off. Tim Jay Strickland told WINK News his neighbors at the estates want to know what caused the massive fire.
“All you heard was a bunch of popping, and loud little explosions were going off,” Strickland said. “People heard gunshots going off before the fire even started!”
Officials with the North Fort Myers Fire Department said there were no gunshots at play when the fire started. A manufactured home was destroyed and a nearby home was damaged by heat and fire.
A 3,000-gallon water truck assisted.
One bystander sustained minor injuries, but no other injuries or fatalities have been confirmed at this time.
