JACKSONVILLE, Fl. - There were no injuries during an early morning house fire in Arlington Friday. The Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department says the fire started in a shed nearby and spread into the home.
JFRD received the call around 3:30 a.m. and responded to the 1800 block of Mauva Juan Ave.
"[I thought] just get out and make sure that everyone is okay," said Stephanie Brown, who was inside the home at the time of the fire.
Brown says she awoke thinking rain was falling on the shed. But then she says she heard flames 'popping' just feet from her.
"I saw the flames and I realized the shed was on fire and that it was spreading to the house, and all I did was run out of my room and wake my grandmother up by screaming, 'The house is on fire get up!" Brown said.
Stephanie says she got her grandmother, Brenda Brown, 73, and their dog out of the home before calling 911.
"I was much more worried about my grandmother than my own life," Brown said. "I was really just worried about really if we hadn't woken up it would've been the smoke that was a big deal."
Brown says smoke was spewing into the home, but thankfully not into either person's room.
"I don't think I did anything amazing, just yelling to get her up and get out," Brown said. "I'm very relieved. Any property damage is kind of a thought, but it's not- what's really important is lives and those can't be replaced."
The State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
