House fire sends owner to hospital


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The onset of cold winter weather also brings a rise in house fires.

On Saturday night reduced a 3-story home in Lake Hamilton to nothing. The flames required four fire engines to put it out. The owner of that home is now recovering in the hospital.

Although the exact cause is still under investigation, there may have been ways to prevent it.

It's no secret that when temperatures drop outside, we try to stay warm inside.However, without proper maintenance that extra heat can suddenly become life-threatening.

"I've never seen a home burn up like this in my life," said neighbor Deborah Scott.

Scott called 911 when she saw her neighbor's house engulfed by fire. "It was unusual because I kept hearing a popping sound."

Propane bottles and bullets, found in the damage, explains those popping sounds and subsequent explosions.
