Ospreys get new platform after nest catches fire

ROCKLEDGE, Fla. (AP) — Some lucky central Florida ospreys are getting a new home after their nesting platform recently caught fire.

The nest caught fire about a month ago when something fell into the electrical equipment lower down on the utility pole.

A concerned resident repeatedly called officials to build a new one. This week, Florida Power and Light workers installed a new metal nesting platform just down the road from the burned one.

Florida Today ( reports the birds were gone when their nest caught fire, but FPL employees said the birds will likely be back in the spring.
