Woman killed in house early Sunday, Jacksonville police say

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., – A woman was killed in a fire early Sunday morning, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

At 1:13 pm, the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department responded to a fire on North Diamond Leaf Court near the Jacksonville Heights area. When firefighters entered the home, they found a woman near the front of the house.

The woman, who has not been identified, was taken to Orange Park Medical, where she died. Officers said she was the only person inside the home at the time of the blaze.

Family and friends gathered around the deadly fire on the Westside.

Dr. Charles Franson lives next door and saw the fire.

Flickering inside my house, "said Franson." I heard some pops and an explosion going on and my lights started flickering inside my house. " "I saw flames shooting to the roof of the house and I told my wife to call 911."

He said he usually saw three people living in the home. A young daughter, husband and wife and that were really good neighbors.

"We shared a lot of things together, and when we were in need of anything, we would always ask one another," Franson said.

He said he was told by firefighters that the fire was electrical.

There's no official word yet as the fire marshal and JSO's homicide unit continue to investigate.

Officials said there are no signs of foul play.

The woman's identity is not released until all family members are notified.
