Deputies said all of the residents in the home got out safe and no injuries were reported.

Neighbors told New4Jax that three boys and their father were at home and escaped just in time. The mother was not home at the time.

It was a modular home so the house caught fire quickly.

Fire rescue had to import water since there were no fire hydrants around.

Fire crews are investigating what caused the fire.

News4Jax will update this story as more information becomes available.
