Woman escapes early morning barn fire

RIVERVIEW, Fla. - A woman was able to escape a large fire Sunday morning.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to the fire on Lincoln Road around 1:50 a.m. When they arrived they saw two large pole barns fully engulfed in flames as well as a nearby shed.

A boat and a 5th wheel trailer were inside the barns at the time of the fire. A woman was asleep inside the trailer, but was able to escape the fire safely. Her dog, however, was not as fortunate.

The fire was put out in half an hour and the cause is under investigation.

All involved in the fire were total losses.

The Red Cross is assisting with food and shelter needs.
