JONESBORO, IL (KFVS) - Firefighters were called to a house fire on the 300 block of South Orange around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday.

The home, located at 320 S. Orange, was engulfed in flames when crews arrived.

According to the police chief there was no one inside the house when the fire started.

Authorities investigating the fire carried out at least 30 plants in foam cups from the basement of the house that appear be marijuana.  Authorities also carried out what looked to be grow lights.

The owner of the home says he lived there with his daughter and her three children. The children are ages 2, 5 and 7.

The children had just left for school when the fire began.

He tells Heartland News a dog was killed in the fire.

At this time there is no word on how the fire started of if anyone was injured in or fighting the fire.
