Sheriff Fire Marshal’s Bureau Inspector Mike Rizzo, left, and State Fire Marshal Detective Bruce Hoffman (right) investigate the cause of a fire that damaged the front of a large two-story house at 14041 Mustang Trail in Southwest Ranches Wednesday morning. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue and the Southwest Ranches Volunteer F.D. responded just after 7:00 a.m. when the occupants, a woman and her daughter, reported smoke filling the house and called 9-1-1. They were able to get out of the house safely with their cats. When the first arriving firefighters arrived, there was heavy fire coming from underneath the front of the house. They quickly put the fire out in less than 30 minutes and checked for hot spots for another hour. No injuries were reported and the investigation is continuing.
