  • Melissa, was it the HCSO that told you to leave because there was a bomb in it? I am confused, with that kind of a fire if there was one in there it would have been fried. That house was completely leveled with the exception of the exterior walls. I live on fish cove, and have seen a lot of police activity since around 3:00 pm. maybe, just maybe, but hope not

  • Tony…..without getting into a lot of detail. Our addresses are based on a “grid system” and that number is based on mileage. Montego St is basically an east/west street. That number reflects that the house is approximately 12.4 miles from the coast. Hope that helps.

  • I live on this street as well they have the street blocked off right now and there is a lot of police activity going on at that house right now. Where people living there or was it vacant?

    • From what I understand from people that live next door, a single man lives there. There was a red car in the car port when it collapsed.

    • Glad you were able to get out safely, Bruce. I couldn’t believe that no one knew it was happening, it was a HUGE fire.

  • Why does most every home around here have 4 & 5 digit number address’s even if the number of homes on the given block don’t reflect that amount of numbers in their address, For instance, a short block has 17 homes on it and each home has a 4 digit address and the name of that street does not extend beyond it’s parameter.

    • Not 100% sure how Hernando bases the beginning point on the west coast, however, it is probably the furthest west point on the Gulf, starting at 1 and going up in increments of 1000 for every mile going east. For North/South, the numbers start at 1 at County Line Rd and go up approx 1000 for every mile going north. So, if the address is, for example, 5000 County Line Rd, the address sits 5 miles EAST of the western most part of the county. If the Address was 2000 US Hwy 19 N, aka Commercial Way, aka SR-55, the address would be 2 miles north of the County Line. Pasco uses the same system with the mouth of the Anclote and the southern County Line being the starting points for east-west and north-south respectively. Pinellas does the same with 1st Street and Central Ave in St Pete being the baselines. Each city could have its own system, ala Brooksville. Good luck figuring that out. FL, just like most other states, is divided into counties, townships, sections and ranges but FL does not have a political subdivision for townships like in some other states. Point of history is that Pasco, Hernando and Citrus at one time were all one county and later subdivided so not sure if the addressing system play together or not, as I think Citrus is on a quadrant system. Hope that helps.
