Fayetteville Fire Department On Scene Of House Fire

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFSM) — The Fayetteville Fire Department was on the scene of a fully involved vacant house fire.

The house is in the vicinity of Markham Hill and Sang Ave.

According to the Fayetteville Fire Department, the house is abandoned. Three engines and two ladder companies are fighting the blaze.

Thomas Good, Fayetteville Fire Department Assistant Chief said no one actually called in the fire.

"It was a fire in a structure," Good said. "It was an abandoned structure we actually never got a call on it. One of our fire units saw the smoke from below the hill and came to investigate. Before we got there it was pushing out enough smoke we knew it was a structure so we rallied the troops."

The cause of the fire is still unknown. The owners of the home told police they have had issues with trespassing on the property before.
