Deputies responded to the scene at approximately 2:30 a.m. on 3/7/14.

Where:
30700 US Hwy 19
Palm Harbor, FL #103 and #80

Why/How:
Detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Arson/Auto Theft Unit are currently investigating two fires at the Frontier Mobile Home Park this morning.

Deputies were originally called out to the scene where lot #103 was fully engulfed in flames. The two residents inside, Animal Kidd and Marcus Devoto, were able to make it outside safety with the assistance of a neighbor.

Both Kidd and Devoto are being treated for non-life threatening injuries (smoke inhalation) at this time.

While fire rescue was extinguishing the fire at lot #103, another one was discovered at #80 (vacant, no injuries). This fire was smaller in nature and quickly extinguished.

It is unknown if either fire is suspicious, detectives are still in the beginning stages of their investigation.
