POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Trumann fire crews spent Wednesday night fighting a house fire in Poinsett County.

According to the Trumann Fire Department’s Facebook page, the fire happened in the Tulot and Payneway area Wednesday evening.

At least one person was taken to an area hospital with burn injuries. That person’s injuries are considered minor.

The cause was reportedly a cooking fire.

Pictures posted on social media show the house was heavily engulfed in flames at one point. It's unclear if anyone was in the home at the time of the fire.
