FLAGLER BEACH, Fla. – A family of five, including three children, were injured early Friday in a house fire in Flagler Beach, officials said.

The fire broke out around 2 a.m. at a home on Ocean Palm Drive near State Road A1A.

Jessica Johnson, and her 11-month-old son, Landon Ghomely, were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center.

"The mother and an 11-month-old were taken by helicopter to the Orlando Burn Center (at ORMC)," Flagler County Fire Rescue Chief Don Petito said.

James Ghomely and a girl were treated and released from Florida Hospital Flagler, officials said.

Another girl remains hospitalized at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando. She's in stable condition, officials said.

The family's house was destroyed by flames. 

"The house was a stilt house, and it went up like a matchstick," Petito said.

Flames jumped to a neighbor's home, causing serious damage, but no one there was injured, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
