JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Red Cross is assisting a family on the Northside today after a fire ripped through their home.

The fire started just before 8 this morning at the home on West 33rd Street. According to JFRD, it was started by a cigarette that fell into a couch on the porch. The fire damaged the porch and a portion of the front room of the house. Damage is estimated at $10,000.
