No one hurt in Sugarloaf Key fire


The Sheriff’s Office responded to a house fire at approximately 11 p.m. on the 17000 block of Oleander Lane Monday night.


There were no reported injuries as a man and woman inside were able to escape.


The man told Deputy Anthony Buscemi there was a fire on the back deck, but by the time he responded with a fire extinguisher the fire had grown much stronger.


Sugarloaf Boulevard and Oleander Lane were temporarily closed as Monroe County Fire Rescue crews battled the blaze.


The Fire Marshal’s Office was called to investigate the fire.
