Fire claims two homes in Everglades City
Early Sunday morning on July 10th, two houses in Everglades City burned down. They were located in a development called Club Everglades on an island in the middle of the Barron River. Firefighters from the Ochopee Fire District had to travel by boat to get their equipment on the scene. All that is left of the first house is a pile of debris and a metal roof. The fire also ignited the house to the left which is now just a burned out shell. Fortunately the house on the right side only lost its exterior siding. The damage can only be seen from the water side.
