Dover Fire Damages Warehouse
It took about 72 firefighters in 36 fire vehicles two hours to bring the blaze under control.
DOVER – Officials are investigating the cause of an overnight fire that damaged a 6,000-square-foot warehouse, according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.
No one was injured in the fire. The warehouse, 14425 Haynes Road in Dover, was used for storage of office equipment and egg cartons.
Firefighters were called to the scene about 2 a.m. When they arrived, firefighters reported a large warehouse building with flames and smoke through the roof. A second alarm was called because of the intensity of the fire and the size of the building.
Because of the amount of water needed to fight the fire, a water tanker operation was set up. A total of seven tankers were brought to the scene to assist.
It took about 90 minutes to contain the fire, and about two hours to bring the fire under control. About 72 firefighters responded to the scene in 36 units. There are no injuries reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
