TRINITY – Two firefighters and a teenager were sent to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in a house fire early this morning (Jan. 28), Pasco County Fire Rescue said.
The names of the three were not available. One firefighter suffered from smoke inhalation. The other suffered from injuries sustained from a fall during firefighting operations. A 17-year-old resident also suffered from smoke inhalation. All three have been released from the hospital this morning and are recovering.
