 Tuesday, June 10, 2014


Hillsborough Fire Rescue crews say a lightning strike caused a two-alarm structure fire at the Grande Oasis Condos on Key Royale Lane in the Carrollwood Monday afternoon. Fire officials say firefighters responded to the condominium complex around 3:50 p.m. to heavy flames coming from the roof of the 3-story building.
Residents were immediately evacuated with the help of the sheriff’s office. "My best friend’s mom called me saying that my apartment is on fire," said resident Carly Clayton, whose two dogs were still inside her condo.
