TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - Fire officials in Trumann are investigating a vacant home that has caught fire twice.

Firefighters say the home was engulfed in flames when they arrived. Winkles says firefighters were on scene until about midnight.

Some residents did report an explosion, which Winkles says was due to an oxygen tank.
