HAINES CITY (FOX 13) - Lou Lind just lost the most import things in his life when fire raced through his mobile home on Bradbury Road, just outside of Haines City.
Lind's two bulldogs were overcome by the fire and could not be rescued.
Midday Tuesday, neighbors heard a massive boom. When they came out to see what was happening, half of Lind's home was already gone.
“The whole back part of the mobile home was engulfed in flames,” said neighbor Sheila Dixon.
Firefighters say the blaze started in Lind’s bedroom.
“I freaked out because that’s where he would normally be if he was home,” said Dixon.
Thankfully, Lind was at his sister’s home, not far from his.
His life was spared, but the lives of his two beloved dogs were not.
“He is really hurting right now because he is saying, My babies are gone,'” Dixon told FOX 13.
The Fire Marshal's Office is investigating. The cause is still unknown.
