The Prescott Fire Department responded to a call around 8:30 p.m. about a fire on DeAnn Street. When firefighters arrived, the structure was fully engulfed. However, there were four vehicles in the front yard firemen had to try and put out to keep them from exploding. While fighting the fire, firefighters learned the owner of the house may have still been inside. Unfortunately, the roof of the structure caved in and it became a search and recover mission.
Fireman Robert Loe said a body was found in the remains of the fire. The fire is under investigation by the Arkansas State Police’s fire team.
