It’s a scene that’s familiar to any homeowner: A fire burns down a home in the backyard of a house in a wooded area.
The flames consume the roof and leave behind charred wood that can be sold for profit or used to build a new home.
The house’s owner, who is a veteran, has a lot to live up to.
But for the past several months, the owner has lived in a wooden house with a wooden deck.
That’s when the fire started.
The blaze is now estimated to have destroyed about $1 million worth of wood, according to fire officials.
But it was a fire in the family, and the owner had no choice but to save the house, said Jeff Brown, an emergency management specialist with the state Division of Forestry and Fire Protection.
“He was not going to let the fire take him down the stairs,” Brown said.
The fire that destroyed the home was in the driveway, which was about 1,300 feet away from the owner’s house.
The owner’s wife, who was on the property at the time of the fire, was home at the same time, but she was not home when the blaze broke out, according a report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
“We’re trying to determine if she was in any way involved,” Brown added.
Brown said it’s too early to say if the fire could have been prevented.
“It’s too soon to tell,” he said.
“There is no indication that this was an intentional, deliberate fire.
It was probably a spontaneous reaction.”
The woodhouse in question is a two-story wooden home called the Woodhouse on the Hill.
The owners have owned the house for about 30 years.
In 2016, the owners purchased the home for $9.7 million, according the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The wood house was built in 1929 and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The home has been in the owners family for at least 20 years, according documents obtained by the Journal.
In a statement, the homeowners said the fire was started by a fire extinguisher.
“I was very saddened to learn that our house, which I have loved and cared for for for the last 30 years, had to be destroyed by a home fire,” the statement read.
“My family has been through a lot over the past few years, but this was not the worst.
Our home has endured a lot.
It has been renovated several times, and I have watched it grow over time.”
The owner told the Journal that he had no plans to sell the home.
“All I can do is keep it in good condition and hope that my wife can come in and enjoy it,” the owner told WFLA-TV.
