Paragould Residence Goes up in Flames


PARAGOULD--Firefighters arrived at a residence on Mockingbird Street Tuesday night to find a mobile home fully engulfed in flames. No one was inside the trailer. However, a man was found in a nearby shed covered in blankets.

Police arrested the man for public intoxication. Paragould Fire Chief Eddie Brown says neighbors heard loud noises coming from the trailer. Shortly after it caught on fire, the Fire Department found him inside a shed next to the trailer. That's when they turned him over to police custody.

Paragould Police are investigating the fire. It is unclear if more charges will follow.
