To-do project spreads into property fire

JONEDBORO, AR (KAIT) – Dry ground helped fire spread from a to-do project to a shed Thursday afternoon.

According to Battalion Chief Brett Winsted, homeowners on 301 Magnolia St. were trying to burn off a tree stump when the fire spread across dry ground on their shed.

Fortunately, fire crews were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the home and surrounding areas.

No one was harmed in the fire, and the shed is heavily damaged.

Winsted warned residents to be careful since fires can spread so easily in weather conditions like these.
