A fire ravaged a remote residence hidden away against a scenic setting between Pine Forest and Echo Forest on Thursday afternoon. The homeowner of the residence on Brittney Lane was down the street at a neighbor’s house when his home caught fire and there was no one else in the structure when the fire started.


According to Orange County Emergency Services District #1 Assistant Fire Chief Robert Smith, a neighbor called 911 at about 3:37 p.m. to report a residential structure fire with smoke and flames visible in the 4000 block of Brittney Lane. Firefighters responded to find a doublewide manufactured home on piers with heavy smoke and flames pouring through the roof.
