A fire at a trailer park on Big Pine Key sent four people to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
Deputies Nancy Roberts and Donald Stulken and Sgt. Evan Calhoun responded to Seahorse Campground just before 10 p.m. to a report of a trailer fire at lot #101. Callers said they thought someone was inside the trailer.
When deputies arrived, smoke was coming from the residence. A neighbor, George Shaia, had already entered the trailer and Sgt. Calhoun and Deputy Stulken followed, pulling an unresponsive 53 year old Robin Grabey out of the trailer.
Firefighters and paramedics arrived a short time later. They extinguished the fire and paramedics treated both deputies, Shaia and Grabey. All four were then transported to area hospitals for further treatment of smoke inhalation. The deputies and Grabey went to Lower Keys Hospital and Shaia to Fishermen’s.
Both state and county Fire Marshals responded to the scene and will be investigating the cause of the blaze.
