A Jonesboro home suffered heavy damage in a Friday morning fire.

According to Jerry McCormick with the Jonesboro Fire Department, firefighters got the call about the house fire around 11 a.m in the 3600-block of Lexee Drive.

No one was hurt in the fire, but one person was inside and escaped to call the fire department, McCormick said.

Right now the cause is being investigated, but it appears the fire started in the front of the home.

Neighbors described the response time of JFD to get the fire under control as both "fast" and "impressive."
