On January 30, 2012 Deputy Scott Stancil responded to a house fire at 19990 NE 17 Place in Williston, Fl. Upon arrival Williston Fire Department and Levy County Fire Rescue were attempting to extinguish the fire. The homeowner, Sandra Adame stated that she was outside feeding the horses when she noticed smoke coming from her residence. Ms. Adame advised that her five-year-old son was inside the residence playing and she feared for his safety. Ms Adame and her son were not harmed and she ran down the lane and flagged a motorist to call 9-1-1.
Due to drought conditions the fire quickly spread from the house to other horse paddocks and the fire personnel were attempting to save the house and the horses. The fire was extinguished and the horses were not harmed but the mobile home was not so lucky.
At this time it is unknown the cause of the fire but the State Fire Marshall has been notified and the investigation continues.
