PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - A fire forced several Ponte Vedra Beach families out of their condominiums early Saturday morning.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office helped two adults and three children out of a second-floor window.

Firefighters say it took nearly an hour to bring the flames under control.

The Red Cross has put those families affected by the fire into hotels for the night, said officials.

There is currently no word yet on what caused the fire. The state fire marshal is investigating.
