PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Pasco County Fire Rescue crews were able to put out a two-alarm fire at the Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel on Saturday.

According to fire rescue, they received the call for the fire around 5:45 p.m. When firefighters arrived they reported heavy smoke conditions and requested the second alarm due to a large amount of fire and size of the building.

Fire rescue crews say firefighters made an “aggressive attack” on the fire as they searched the building for victims. No fire victims were found. Additional firefighters worked on knocking the fire down in the interior of the building.

Through the use of Pasco County Fire Rescue’s Drone 1, they noticed from the thermal imaging that the fire was in the attic and in the center of the building. Firefighters then cut a vent hole in the roof to knock the remaining of the fire down.

Pasco Fire Rescue said it took 90 minutes to get the fire under control. The fire was stopped from spreading to additional buildings.

All eight units in the building suffered substantial fire damage.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
