Couple Dies after Windermere Home Burns to the Ground

A deadly fire broke out in the home of a couple living in Windermere on Saturday morning that left two individuals dead and the Windermere Police Department sifting through shouldering ash for answers.

Both the Ocoee Fire Department and the Orange County Fire Rescue responded to the scene and began to battle the blaze.

Florida DOT Orders Examination of All Overpasses

After a major overpass bridge along Atlanta’s Interstate 85 caught on fire and collapsed, the Florida Department of Transportation is ordering that all overpass bridges throughout the state that are undergoing construction be inspected for possible flammable substances. The move is a preventative one, aimed at ensuring the future safety of motorists along Florida’s numerous highways as the overpasses undergo construction, updates, and routine maintenance. Looking at the Atlanta disaster as an example of what can happen if all the necessary precautions are not taken care of, the Florida Department of Transportation stated (through its Central Florida District 5 spokesperson, Steve Olson) that numerous factors exist that could potentially weaken the structure of an overpass. Fire is one of the most disastrous as it causes structural compromise that may not even be noticed until the bridge itself collapses. Read the rest »
