Rogers fire crews extinguish early morning duplex fire

Fire crews in Rogers responded to an early morning duplex fire on South 18th Street early Friday morning.

ROGERS, Ark. — The Rogers Fire Department responded to a duplex fire Friday (Feb. 18) morning on South 18th Street.

Rogers Fire Capt. Joey Everhart says there was a family inside the home at the time of the fire. 

The flames were successfully put out within 5 minutes, Everhart said. Crews stayed for about an hour to make sure the fire was fully out before letting the family return to their home.

What sparked the flames is undetermined at this time, but the fire department says it was located between the kitchen and the living room. 

There was minimal damage, and no injuries reported to the occupants of the duplex or fire crew. The other attached duplex had slight smoke and water damage.
