Jacksonville Fire and Rescue responded to two house fires Wednesday evening.
JFRD first responded to a home on Sycamore Street in Northwest Jacksonville to find it still burning around 7:30 PM. We have not been able to confirm if there were people in the home at this time.
A second fire started on a porch at a home on the 1700 block of West 44th St on the Westside. JFRD was able to quickly contain that fire, preventing it from spreading to the home. Our news partner Action News says the home appeared to be abandoned.
