Overnight house fire in Jonesboro under investigation


Jonesboro fire officials are investigating an overnight fire.

It happened early Monday morning on Gregory Cove, between Johnson Avenue and Prospect Road.

Neighbors told Region 8 News flames could be seen from the structure before crews arrived, but fire officials said it was just smoldering ashes when they arrived on scene.

The home was under construction and had no dry wall or roof on the building.

Crews worked to extinguish hot spots and make sure neighboring houses were not in danger.

Division Chief of Fire Marshal Craig Davenport says they are still investigating the cause, but have been hampered by recent weather.
