JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) – Fire crews responded to a “fully-involved” house fire in Jonesboro Thursday night.

Jonesboro police dispatch confirmed the fire was at a home in the 800-block of Richsmith Lane off North Patrick Street around 7:50 p.m. Sept. 29.

The Jonesboro Fire Department said six people were in the home at the time of the fire. They said the people smelled smoke, opened the back door, and saw fire.

Firefighters added the people were able to get out, and the fire was out, but the American Red Cross had to be called in since the house was a “total loss.”

Chief Martin Hamrick reported no suspicious activity and said fire marshals could not pinpoint the exact cause of the fire since the damage was so extensive, but they can say that the fire started in the attic.
