SHANNON HILLS, AR – Several fire departments responded to a house fire burning on Dublin Road Wednesday night in Shannon Hills.
Neighbors say around 8pm they heard loud booms and pops, went outside, and saw the home fully engulfed. Shannon Hills Police say the fire started in a dumpster sitting next to the house. Police say the explosions neighbors heard were aerosol cans exploding in the dumpster.
There were no immediate reports of injuries related to the fire. It appears as if the home is a total loss.
Crews from the Shannon Hills Fire Department, Arch Street Fire Department, and Northeast Saline County Volunteer Fire Department fought the fire. Shannon Hills Police helped by blocking off nearby roads while crews fought the flames.
The family who lives in the house is receiving help from the Red Cross. The homeowner says the tenants were renovating the home, which is why there was a dumpster in the driveway. The fire destroyed a car, the garage, and most of the house.
