Firefighter recovering after injury fighting fire

LAND O' LAKES, Fla. - Three firefighters are recovering Sunday after a serious house fire that broke out just after 10 p.m. Saturday.

Pasco County Fire crews were called out to 4048 Cox Drive in Land O'Lakes. When crews arrived they found the single story home fully engulfed in flames.

27 firefighters responded to the fire from six different fire stations due to the intensity of the fire. Though the fire was quickly brought under control, the structure posed many difficulties to firefighters trying to put out the flames.

It took several hours before the fire was completely extinguished.

Three firefighters suffered minor injuries during the course of the fire fight. All were taken to local hospitals with only one staying overnight.

Fire investigators remain on scene of the fire Sunday morning to further investigate what caused the blaze.
