On Monday, June 3, 2019 at approximately 10:18 a.m., a neighbor noticed smoke coming out of the roof and the windows all seemed extremely dark at the home located at 193 Edelweiss Drive in the Swiss Village Mobile Home Park.

Once Winter Haven fire arrived, they found flames coming from the roof. It took firefighters approximately 15 minutes to completely knock down the fire, which had spread throughout the ceiling crawl space of the structure.

The home, which was recently purchased, was being renovated.

The cause was determined to be electrical.
