Gilchrist County Fire
Heather Curtis and her family shared the land with her aunt and grandfather, who suffers from macular degeneration which affects his eye sight.Â Curtis' brother says their grandfather was burning yard trash when it started.
With 15 miles per hours winds and recent cold snaps, the fire spread quickly destroying about 10 acres.Â It then spread to the mobile home.
"We moved not too long ago, but we left a lot of stuff here because we didn't have really anywhere to put it or anything. And it just... It's all gone now," Curtis said.
Firefighters say an aerosol can may have caused the blaze and ultimately been to blame for the fire.Â Â But it might have been controlled easier with the right precautions.
