One woman and two Santa Rosa Sheriff’s deputies were sent to the hospital for smoke inhalation Thursday night, Nov. 24, after a fire engulfed a home on Hidden Estates Circle in Navarre.
According to a press release from the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office, deputies James Moye and Joshua Hargitt responded at approximately 11:30 p.m. to a home fully engulfed by flames.
The officers observed an unconscious woman inside the house and proceeded inside to rescue her because firefighters were not yet on scene.
They pulled the woman out of the burning house safely, and emergency medical personnel treated her. According to Holley-Navarre Fire District Battalion Chief Howie Rounsaville the woman was conscious and talking by the time she was transported to the hospital for treatment. He said at last update she was doing well.
Moye and Hargitt were also treated by emergency medical personnel and taken to the hospital for treatment for smoke inhalation. According to the press release, both officers are doing fine.
The blaze caused severe damage to the home including caving in the roof according to Rounsaville.
The Florida State Fire Marshall’s Office is investigating the cause of the blaze.
