• Fire that gutted 'Sausage Castle' in St. Cloud 'suspicious,' officials say


    SAINT CLOUD, Fla. - The notorious former nuisance sex party house dubbed the “Sausage Castle” burned to the ground in St. Cloud Wednesday morning, and officials have called the cause "suspicious."

    The fire was reported early Wednesday at the property in the 3800 block of Hickory Tree Street.

    Firefighters were able to put out the fire, but the house was a complete loss, officials said.

    No information was released on why investigators have dubbed the blaze suspicious because there was no electricity running to the house.

    The “Sausage Castle” was well known in St. Cloud as a place where people would gather for wild sex parties and shoot guns in the front yard.
