A large fire broke out last month at Key Harbour condos in Perdido Key, FL. The complex consists of 8 buildings situated along Ole River about 200 yards east of Flora-Bama Yacht Club. Several buildings were engulfed with flames in the early morning hours and rapidly spread to other structures including Pescador Landing next door. Fortunately, residents and employees of Flora-Bama and Waffle House helped in waking up all the homeowners and getting them out safely.

A free-standing home, 14 units at Key Harbour, and 12 units at Pescador Landing were completely destroyed causing approximately $5 million in damage.
