ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – Crews from Alachua County Fire Rescue, Newberry Fire Department, and Micanopy Fire Department responded this morning to a large residential fire that was already through the roof when crews arrived. All occupants got out safely. The fire remains under investigation.

  • Prayers that they have good homeowner’s insurance and that they aren’t displaced for long.

  • Sad and I hope they recover soon. Wonder if it started in the garage, was there an EV car parked inside there?

  • Reptiles didnt die. The good and passionate people from Gator City Reptiles are taking care of our snakes for free. They were found alive by the firemen after I realized the small cavinet appears to be intact.
