JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The fire marshal wants to know what caused a vacant home to go up in flames.

Jeff Presley, E911 director, reported the fire around 6:15 a.m. Friday, April 30, in the 3900-block of South Caraway near Glenn Place.

When crews arrived they reported seeing heavy smoke and flames coming from the single-story home.

Police shut down the roadway to allow crews to tackle the “working house fire.”

By 6:45 a.m., officers had opened one lane of Caraway Road between The Links and Glenn Place but urged motorists to avoid the area.

Officials on the scene said the house was vacant, and no one was hurt.

The fire marshal will be investigating the cause.
