ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -

The St. Johns County Fire & Rescue assisted the St. Augustine Fire Department battling a house fire in St. Augustine early Friday morning.

Around 5:30 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to a home on 11 Blanche Lane in St. Augustine in reference to a fire, according to SJCFR.

When firefighters arrived, the home was fully involved.

Firefighters were able to get the fire out, but the home will likely be a total loss, according to firefighters.

We do not know if anyone was in the home or hurt at the time of the fire, but SJCFR said it did not transport anyone from the scene to the hospital.

The Red Cross has been called to assist the owners of the home.
