Pembroke Park woman dies in mobile home fire

A Pembroke Park woman rescued by firefighters died at the hospital Wednesday morning following a fire that gutted her mobile home.

Just before 10:00 a.m., passersby called 9-1-1 to report smoke coming from a mobile home in the Lake Shore Mobile Home Park. First arriving Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue units went into the burning single-wide mobile home and began extinguishing the fire. Hallandale Beach firefighters assisting were assigned to search and found the victim, unconscious and unresponsive, in the mobile home which was packed with clutter.

Broward Sheriff firefighters began aggressive resuscitation measures of the victim, identified as Bambilyn Torra, 50, then transported her to Memorial Regional Hospital where she died at 10:41 a.m. Broward Sheriff firefighters also rescued three dogs from the burning mobile home, two of which succumbed and the third survived and was doing well.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office is conducting an ongoing investigation into the cause and origin of the fire. As is standard procedure, BSO Homicide detectives are conducting the death investigation. Preliminary indications thus far are consistent with smoking materials pointing towards the cause.
