WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) - An investigation is underway to determine what caused a Walnut Ridge house to go up in flames.

Shortly before 3 a.m. Tuesday crews responded to a house fire on SW Third Street.

Captain Wes Lillard said when they arrived, the home was "fully engulfed" in flames.

It took two trucks and nearly three hours to knock down the fire.

No one was living in the house, which he called a rental. Lillard could not reach the owner.

A neighboring house, which was also empty, suffered minor damage.

The captain said the fire was under investigation.
