A Jacksonville man tried desperately to extinguish a blaze in Northwest Jacksonville while his wife and son were trapped inside.
The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department tweeted around 5 a.m. that crews were responding to the 9500 block of Spottswood Road. When they arrived, they advised that smoke was visible from inside.
A mother, father and adult son lived at the home, according to JFRD. The father escaped and tried to use a water hose to extinguish the blaze but was unsuccessful.
Both the mother and son were rescued from the home by fire crews and have been taken to the hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.
Crews are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
