A 1920s-era Broward County house in Southwest Ranches was destroyed by fire and another was damaged in a weekend blaze on the 4900 block of Southwest 163rd Avenue, the sheriff’s department said. The house, a so-called cracker-style home, was moved from nearby Davie to the Southwest Meadows Sanctuary, a mixed recreational and historical park, said Southwest Ranches Mayor Jeff Nelson. The properties in the park were meant to give visitors a feel for rural, pre-development Florida.
