House Fire in Boca Greens

Thanks to our readers and Palm Beach County Alerts for information about this morning’s house fire in Boca Greens Country Club.

***WEST BOCA*** Residential Fire — 19661 Sea Pines Way (Boca Greens CC) — E51 onscene of a 1-story house, advising heavy fire blowing thru the roof, starting fire attack and searches, per neighbors the house is unoccupied, E54 plugging the hydrant — Tac 7A

As best we can tell, the fire may have been started by a lightning strike around 3 am. The “whole back of the house caught fire” and “the back of the roof caved in.”
Fortunately no one was in the house and no injuries have been reported. Property appraiser records show the 2000 square foot home was purchased in June for $257K. The new owner’s mailing address is an apartment in New York City
As always we and our readers appreciate Palm Beach County Fire Rescue for their quick and thorough response.
