Abandoned house ignites, catches fire

Fire Marshals are looking at an abandoned house that caught fire after what neighbors called an explosion.

Noonday and Bullard fire crews were called at 8 P.M. Wednesday night to the 22,000 block of the Dogwood Trails area.

Firefighters say an ignition into an abandoned home quickly spread. Neighbors tell KLTV 7 they heard an explosion in the moments before the fire.

The fire then spread to an abandoned mobile home, but firefighters were able to keep the flames at that home's porch.

Neither home had electricity, and right now, firefighters do not know what caused the fire to break out.

Firefighters also had to keep the flames from spreading off into some nearby woods. No one was injured.
