Jacksonville (Florida) firefighters responded mid-morning January 27, 2013 to a house fire at Maybank and Wild Heron Way. Callers reported that the occupants and their dog were still inside the structure. The first arriving engine company made a quick stretch to cut the fire off from inside, while Engine 30 made entry to attempt to find the occupants. Ladder 30 quickly joined the search but neither company was able to find any victims. It was later discovered that residents and pets evacuated safely before the arrival of the first units. The fire was extinguished with three 1 3/4 handlines and one 2 1/2 inch handline.

No injuries reported. The garage and vehicles were totally destroyed, but firefighters saved the house.

In a few video frames out the back of the house, the St. Johns River is visible off the back yard.
