GASKIN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A house fire broke out in Gaskin around 9:30 Friday morning, but first responders were able to get everyone out safely.

Walton County Fire Rescue, Argyle Volunteer Fire Department, and Liberty Volunteer Fire Department went to a home on Gill Road after a 911 call about a structure fire. Officials said after arriving, they called Ponce de Leon Volunteer Fire and Rescue and Pine Log Volunteer Fire Rescue for help.
