Plant City house fire kills 3 dogs, sends man, 72, to hospital

Three dogs were killed, and a 72-year-old man was taken to the hospital late Sunday night after a fire at his home in Plant City.
Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to the fire at 2303 South Wiggins road around 11:30 pm Sunday night.
Crews arrived to find the man's daughter, 50, waving for them to attend to her father lying in the grass. 
He was eventually taken to a nearby hospital with non life threatening injuries.
No other victims were found.  
The fire was extinguished quickly by interior attack, and crews climbed through the attic space to put out the last of the flames.  
The single story home sustained significant fire damage near the front, left corner of the house.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by HCFR.
