At approximately 6:30 Thursday morning, August 22, the Boca Grande Fire Department responded to a house fire at 311 Pilot Point Lane in Boca Bay, the Talbot home.
After arriving on scene at 6:41 a.m. firefighters found a fully involved home. The home next door at 315 Pilot Point was also severely damaged.
Englewood Fire and Charlotte Fire were called upon for mutual aid in the incident. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The state fire marshall was on scene by 9:30 a.m.
No one occupied the residences at the time of the fire. It was called in by a Boca Bay employee, as an alarm in one of the homes signaled trouble simultaneously.
