VIDEO: A house fire causes a traffic alert on the Northside. The fire started at a home on Davis Street and now West 11th Street and West 13th Street are closed. Channel 4's Erica Rakow is at the scene to tell us how this fire started.


A mattress caught fire in a Northside home Friday morning, closing some roads in the area.

West 11th Street and West 13th Street were closed while Jacksonville Fire-Rescue extinguished the fire.

The fire started at a vacant home on Davis Street around 7:15 a.m.  Homeless people were known to crawl through a hole at the bottom of that home and seek shelter inside, according to JFRD.

A mattress caught fire inside the home.  No one was injured.
