Fire re-ignites in Homosassa home damaged in Tuesday's brushfire

This trailer, damaged in Tuesday's brushfire, re-ignited overnight and is now a total loss.

Citrus Daily.Com
Brushfire hot spots kept Citrus County firefighters busy all night and into this Wednesday morning.

And at 2:31 a.m., a doublewide mobile home, already partially damaged during Tuesday's brushfire on Grover Cleveland in Homosassa, somehow re-ignited and began to burn.

The home, located at 6640 W. Country Club Drive in Homosassa, is owned by Norman J. Lavertu.

No one was injured in the fire.

When firefighters arrived, one-quarter of the home was ablaze, and the fire was not brought under control until 4 a.m. The home was declared a total loss due to water, heat and smoke damages.

Fire Rescue units had been in and out of the area all night into the early morning hours because a number of residents were reporting hot spots in the area of the brushfire from Tuesday afternoon. The Citrus County Sheriff
