Cody’s Original Roadhouse destroyed by fire in Tampa

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue is on a major structure fire scene at Cody’s Original Roadhouse, 11202 W. Hillsborough Avenue, Tampa.

Dispatchers received calls at 5:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 2, 2024, and the first arriving units reported a structure fully engulfed in fire.

Crews attempted an interior attack, but conditions worsened, so they pivoted to a defensive attack, utilizing elevated water streams from truck companies.

Crews are overhauling the partially collapsed structure and extinguishing hot spots.
