Hudson, Florida -- A three-story home was completely destroyed in Pasco County.

Pasco County Fire Rescue received a call for a structure fire at 6:55 p.m. on April 16. The first crews arrived to find the three-story home with heavy flames coming from the first and second floors and heading towards the third.

Because there were no hydrants in the area a tanker shuttle operation was established. Strong winds fueled the quick-moving fire and the entire structure was consumed.

It took thirty firefighters nearly an hour to bring the fire under control.

The $600,000 home was a total loss. The home was occupied at the time of the fire and one of the occupants was transported to the hospital for treatment.

No firefighters were injured and the cause of the fire still remains under investigation.
