Firefighters battle dumpster fire on island

Posted on October 7, 2019 by Staff reports

Navarre Beach Fire Rescue earlier today responded to a fire at 8478 Gulf Boulevard, and successfully extinguished the flames.

“We had a large dumpster fire behind Resort Quest office,” said NBFR Captain Shaun Hall.

“We did have minor damage to the building, windows and siding, but we were able to stop the fire before it extended into the structure,” Hall said.

The dark smoke plume from the fire was visible on the north side of Santa Rosa Sound.
