The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department battled a house fire early Tuesday morning on Phelps Road.
JFRD said the fire started at the front of the home and no one was inside at the time of the fire.
The fire chief on scene said neighbors on Phelps St. told him they see people going in and out of the home. He said it's likely someone was seeking shelter from cold wx and forgot they lit a fire. @ActionNewsJax https://t.co/mtxltoqpe6— Christy Turner (@ChristyANJax) January 2, 2018
