• Fire quickly extinguished at abandoned Westside home


    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The quick thinking of two delivery drivers prevented a fire from spreading in an abandoned house on Andrews Street, near Edgewood and Commonwealth avenues.

    According to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, the two drivers noticed smoke coming from the attic of the home and called 911.

    The door was broken down, but no one was found to be inside. The fire was put out quickly and contained to the attic.

    The Fire Marshal was on the scene investigating and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office closed off a portion of the road to investigate.
