At 1645 hours on Sunday, units were dispatched for multiple reports of a dwelling fire off of Loch Raven Boulevard in Hillendale’s first due area. While still en-route, Engine 11 reported thick black smoke in the area. They arrived minutes later to find a two-story duplex on in the 1600 block of Mussula Road and reported heavy fire showing. After bystanders reported the possibility of occupants still being inside, a fire rescue assignment was requested. Engine 10 and Engine 291 came to the alley and reported fire on both floors to the rear of the dwelling. Units worked to extinguish the fire and search the residence. The fire was knocked down at which point Jacksonville’s Air Unit 478 and the rehab units were requested for extensive overhaul operations. The primary and secondary search revealed the occupants were not home. Two cats were rescued by firefighters and given oxygen.
