Firefighter loses home to fire.

Created November 4, 2018
On November 4, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to a reported structure fire. What they did not know, is that the house belonged to one of their own. FF Torres was on duty when he heard the call go out. He knew the call was on his street but never imagined it would be his house. As first responders, we are trained to handle any type of call we receive. You never expect to get a call that your house is on fire. His family made it out safe but unfortunately their dog did not survive. The house suffered severe fire and smoke damage and there is a long road ahead.

We are raising money to help with some of the more urgent needs as the Torres family tries to start working through the process of recovery. Any help is truly appreciated in making all of this less burdensome. Thank you for your support.

In the fire service, we call our brothers and sisters our second family. We respond to those we serve and see it from a different perspective . Then sometimes, one of our own will experience first hand what we fight on a daily basis....

The outpouring support from each and everyone of you is remarkable. We “Thank You” for your well wishes and continued support.

The response has been overwhelming to say the least. Eddie was my firefighter for a period of time and I can tell you, he is very humble. With the help from all of you, you will make this process easier. Thank you to everyone for all your support!
