At 10:36 a.m. Thursday, Monroe County Fire Rescue responded to a fully involved fire of a two-story house at 26 Bay Drive in the Bay Point subdivision, around mile marker 15 in the Lower Keys.

“The first company arrived, station 10 out of Sugarloaf, and the house was completely involved from top to bottom and side to side,” Monroe County Fire Chief James Callahan said. “The guys and gals went into defensive mode and did a good job to contain the fire to the house and not let it spread.”

Monroe County Fire Rescues stations 9 and 13 and Tanker 13 also responded, as well as Naval Air Station Key West’s fire department and the Key West Fire Department also assisted. The fire was extinguished, with no injuries, but the house is a total loss. The house to the left of the fire suffered slight damage to a shed and the house to the right was unaffected, Callahan said.

The Fire Marshal was on scene and is investigation the cause of the blaze.
