Fire guts Region 8 home, family out safely

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Firefighters from several departments responded to a house fire on County Road 780 Thursday morning. 

According to the Brookland Fire Department, the home located at 5311 CR 780, was very built and the walls were pretty thick. The fire department had a hard time breaking through some of the walls to extinguish the fire.

The fire department also said that no fire hydrant was close to the home, so they had to make several trips with tankers.

Fire trucks blocked the roadway and residents in the area had to find alternate routes to work and school. 

The family was able to get out of the home safely, and the fire in under investigation.

Firefighters from Philadelphia, Brookland, and Greene County responded to the blaze.
