HOXIE, AR (KAIT) -

Crews worked to put out a house fire in Hoxie Thursday morning.

The family living in the home was reportedly out of town when the fire started. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters knocked down the fire in a little over an hour but remained on scene, putting out hot spots, until mid-morning.

Ditto said on Monday that the cause of the fire was an electric heater that had been left plugged in.
