One person was killed and another was rushed to the hospital after an Orange County house fire. 

The home, which on Sherman Street near Bithlo, is devastated and the family is too. Firefighters say that two people were inside the home when the fire broke out around midnight.

Officials aren't releasing names, but a family member says that a woman and her mother were inside around midnight. A neighbor told Fox 35 that her husband was able to see the flames from a few doors down.

One person was pronounced dead on the scene. A family member says that was the younger woman. The older woman was rushed to a hospital and is expected to be okay.

13 Orange County Fire Crews rushed to the scene, but firefighters say that when they got there, more than half the mobile home was engulfed in flames. At that point, the goal was to stop the fire from spreading.

Crews do not know yet where the fire started. The State Fire Marshal is investigating.
