BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) - A home in Craighead County is a total loss after it caught fire Wednesday morning.

According to Craighead County E-911 Dispatch, the fire was reported just after 7 a.m. on County Road 754.

By 8 a.m., crews had the fire extinguished and were watching for hot spots.

No one was home when the fire began.

Keith Doyle, the homeowner, said he was running errands when the fire began.

"I had seen it in Brookland and I said that's my house on fire," Doyle said. "So, when I drove up, certainly that's what it was. Of course, it's disturbing but I have a brand new start. I won't be frightened because the good lord will build all this stuff right back for me."

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
