      Worth County fire burns house down

      According to worthit2u, flames erupted from a residence early Friday morning.

      Fox 31 confirmed with SFD Captain Drew Cox that the Sylvester Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 116 Albany Avenue in Sylvester near Shipp's Funeral Home.

      While firefighters were trying to quickly extinguish flames, a power line fell on to one of the trucks. Worth County Fire Department was called in to assist in putting the fire out.

      The fire was controlled but resulted in a total loss.

      No injuries were sustained in this fire. The homeowner was away from his residence at the time of the fire.

      Captain Cox said that the fire doesn't seem to be suspicious and that the cause and origin may not be determined because of the fire. They may have been able to save the house if the power line had not fallen.
