TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - Fire officials in Trumann are investigating a vacant home that has caught fire twice.

Trumann Fire Chief Rick Winkles says an empty home on Monroe Street caught fire around 10 p.m. Monday night. The home had already been on fire once before, according to the chief.

Firefighters say the home was engulfed in flames when they arrived. Winkles says firefighters were on scene until about midnight.

 

Some residents did report an explosion, which Winkles says was due to an oxygen tank.

No one was hurt in the fire, but the home sustained heavy damage.
