Morning Apartment Fire Results in One Fatality


Jacksonville - An early morning apartment fire left a 29-year-old Arlington man dead.

At approximately 5:00 AM, Jacksonville firefighters responded to the Sunrise Apartments at 1135 Bert Road on the city's south side. Residents of the apartment complex called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the victim's apartment. When firefighters arrived they found the apartment locked and after forcing entry discovered the man's body lying near the front door.

The Florida State Fire Marshal's office, Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Jacksonville Fire Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms are conducting a joint investigation into the cause of the fire. At this time the exact cause of the fire has not been determined.
