Significant damage in Pocahontas house fire

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT)- A late Thursday morning house fire caused considerable damage to a Pocahontas home.

According to Fire Chief Jimmy Shields, his crews were called to a house in the 1800 block of Rosewood shortly after 11 a.m. Shields says there was quite a bit of fire damage throughout the house and they are still working to determine the cause.

"We were the first unit to arrive on the scene, there was heavy smoke showing. We made entry into the house, had to knock down a fire," Shields says,

Crews had the fire under control within the hour. Shields adds they stayed on scene to put out hot spots.

Everyone was able to get out of the house and no injuries were reported.
