JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Crews battled a fire Thursday morning that damaged semi-trucks in south Jonesboro.

Captain Justin Rolland with the Craighead County Sheriff's Office said investigators do suspect arson.

The Southridge Fire Department was called to 263 County Road 402 to put out the fire which involved trucks and tires around 6:30 a.m.

However, the department said the fire was smoldering when they got on the scene which may indicate it was burning for a long time prior to their arrival.

Eight trucks sustained damage in the fire, four were totaled.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
