Crews On-scene of a Fire in Wesley Chapel that Resulted in a Fatality


A second victim has died from injuries sustained from yesterday’s mobile home fire on Penny Royal Rd in Wesley Chapel.

The elderly male that was transported by bayflite to a local burn unit passed 
away overnight from his injuries.

At approximately 10:30 AM, on March 4th, 2019, Pasco County Fire 911 received 
a call of a reported home fire in the 5900 block of Penny Royal Rd in Wesley 

When Firefighters arrived on the scene, they reported a single-wide mobile 
home with fire shooting from all sides. Firefighters also reported one elderly 
male outside the house that was severely burned. Firefighters on the scene 
called a trauma alert for the elderly male found in the yard of the home and 
requested transport by a medical helicopter to a local burn unit where he 
later died.

Due to the amount of fire found upon arrival a defensive attack was called. 
After the initial knockdown, and search of the home, one elderly female and a 
dog were found deceased in the home.
