The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department responded to a house fire on Wells Road on Friday near the Cecil Commerce Center.

No one was in the home at 18031 Wells Road, but the roof collapsed before firefighters could get the blaze under control.

Firefighters on scene struggled with the extreme heat, and extra crews had to be brought in to make quicker rotations.
