Jonesboro fire marshal needs help solving possible arson

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Investigators now believe a fire that destroyed a home in Jonesboro this week was set intentionally.

The potential arson happened at a home in the 1700 block of Henry Street in Jonesboro.

The Jonesboro Fire Department was called to the house around 10 p.m. Monday.

The home had been vacant for some time after the owner moved in with family.

Fire Marshal Jason Wills says it appears someone started at the back of the house and set fire to plastic covering several windows and a door.

Wills says the house is a complete loss after the fire, and he now needs the public's help to catch whoever may have done this.

"We're reaching out for anyone that can help us with this – anyone that might have information, anybody that has been near the property, anything like that," Wills said. "At this point, we're just looking for help."

Wills says if people have information that could help solve this case, they should call either Crimestoppers at 870-935-STOP or the Jonesboro Fire Marshal's Office at 870-932-2428.
