Fire Destroys Century Old Home In Jupiter

JUPITER, FL (WFLX)  A fire destroys a home in Jupiter.

Neighbors reported the fire around 5 a.m. Sunday morning. Police and Fire Rescue closed off about a block of Center Street near Greenwood Drive as they battled the blaze. 

"When I finally heard the sirens and went outside, I saw flames just shooting up about 20 feet in the air. It was just completely engulfed in flames. It really kind of shocked me," said neighbor Sandra Getz.

Firefighters said downed power lines and limited access made fighting the fire difficult.

One firefighter had to be treated for minor injuries after debris from the fire got into his eyes. Neighbors said no one lived at the house. Still no word on what caused the fire.
