Pinellas Park firefighters battle massive Halloween house fire

Fire crews worked for more than three hours to get the blaze under control.

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. — Firefighters worked for more than three hours Sunday night to extinguish a two-alarm house fire set ablaze in Pinellas Park.

Fire officials said smoke and flames could be seen coming through the roof of the house on 82nd Avenue N. near 64th Street. The house was largely made of wood, Pinellas Park Fire Operations Chief Rob Angell noted.

The initial call went out to firefighters around 7:30 p.m. Just over three hours later, fire crews were able to gain control of the fire.

The person who lives in the home was able to get out safely, Angell said.

Multiple fire departments assisted in putting out the fire, including crews from St. Petersburg, Largo and Seminole.

Crews are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
