JONESBORO – Fire destroyed a home on Looks Point Road Sunday afternoon.
The fire happened just before 4 p.m. at 19 Looks Point Road.
Fire Chief Michael Schoppe said someone nearby called emergency crews and the homeowners weren’t aware there was a fire until the firetrucks arrived.
Schoppe said when they got to the scene a wood shop was fully engulfed in flames and the fire had spread to the garage. He said it quickly spread to the house.
The two people who lived there were able to get out safely.
Schoppe said the main part of the house is still standing but there is extensive damage.
He said the homeowner did have a wood fire going in the workshop and that it appears that is where the fire started.
