Jacksonville Beach, FL – One Injured in House Fire at 1st Ave N

Jacksonville, FL – Injuries Reported in House Fire on Elmhurst Dr

Jacksonville, FL (February 16, 2020) – Last night, February 15, Jacksonville Fire and Rescue was called to the scene of a house fire at 10300 Elmhurst Dr. in Jacksonville.

Police did not yet confirm what led to the structure fire but said that an adult and two children were displaced as a result. One person was injured and was being treated when police arrived.

It took a period of time for Fire and Rescue to get the fire under control due to the severity but they have not yet determined the cause.

At this time, the investigation remains ongoing.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
