Northside house destroyed by fire

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Red Cross will help two people were needing a place to stay after their Northside home burned early Saturday morning.

Jacksonville Fire-Rescue knocked down the fire at the home on West 39th and Silver Streets, but know before the house was a total loss.

Micheal Reed, who lives in the home, said he was at the hospital with his girlfriend when his neighbor called to say the house was on fire. When he got home, he found the roof caved in and everything inside ruined.

"You look at the house; it’s destroyed," Reed said.

The fire marshal was called to determine the cause and investigators brought a K-9 to sniff out the source of the fire, but they found nothing suspicious.
