2 dogs perished, 3 people displaced in Port St Lucie House Fire

Update! 10/31/2019

Two dogs died of smoke inhalation from a house fire in St. Lucie County Wednesday morning, according to the fire district. It said the fire happened just after 8am at a home in the 400 block of Ravenswood Ln. Firefighters said although the flames were contained to the kitchen there was extensive smoke damage. Two adults and a child were displaced, the St. Lucie County Fire District said. An investigation revealed that the fire was an accident. It was caused by the stove. Photos showed that the home still had hurricane shutters up. Most local governments, including the city of Port St Lucie, require residents to remove any hurricane shutters soon after a storm passes. The rules are in place partly because of how dangerous it can be when a fire breaks out in a home with hurricane shutters up. Not only is it more difficult for firefighters to get into the home, but it can make it harder, or even impossible, for anyone inside the home to escape.
