House ruined, 2 animals killed in fire at Fort Myers farm

Dozens of firefighters responded to a fire at a house on a Fort Myers farm Wednesday morning.

It is not yet known how or exactly when the fire started at the house on Huffman Farm, located at 14850 Alico Road, which advertises itself as a horseback riding center. Estero Fire Rescue and the San Carlos Park Fire Department say there were no injuries, and the family that was inside the home is together and safe, but two animals were lost in the blaze.

Firefighters say they are operating in “salvage mode,” trying to pick up any pieces left behind. No roads have been blocked due to the fire.

This is a developing story and will be updated as new information becomes available.
