JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A family of three was displaced Thursday after their home caught on fire.

The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department believe the cause of the fire is potentially suspicious.

Around 4:30 a.m., firefighters were called to the home on McQuade Street, in the Robinson's Addition neighborhood. Smoke could be seen coming from the home where the two adults and a teenager with special needs lived.

The Red Cross was called to assist the family.

The State Fire Marshal is now investigating.
