CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Firefighters were called to the scene of Craighead County Road 7922 Monday afternoon when a mobile home caught fire around 2 p.m.

Firefighter John Burns with the Brookland Fire Protection District was one of the first people on the scene.

"When we arrived, we had flames exiting from one end of the structure," Burns said."We made an interior attack and were able to cut the fire off and save it from that end of the structure."

Burns said they first got there they were worried someone might be inside.
