It took crews 16 minutes to get the fire under control, JFRD said.
A neighbor nearby said the flames coming from the home were huge and she feared that the trees would catch fire.
A Jacksonville Sheriff's officer at the scene told Action News Jax no one was injured as a result of the fire.
I just spoke to a neighbor who lives nearby, not even a block over. She tells me the flames were huge earlier and she feared the trees you see here would catch on fire. @ActionNewsJax pic.twitter.com/PbYCzEF5Sq— Courtney Cole (@CourtneyANJax) May 20, 2018
