Saturday fire destroys Floral City mobile home

Citrus County firefighters on Saturday were called to battle a blaze at a Floral City mobile home at 8205 E. Gobbler Court.

There were no injuries at the home, which is owned by Joe Seaman.

The home was fully involved by the time firefighters arrived at 9:44 p.m., where they found the roof collapsed and portions of the floor had burned though, making it difficult for interior operations. The fire was brought under control in 10 minutes, but cleanup took several hours because the home had several layers of siding, including brick facia.
