MILLER CO, AR (KSLA) -

Fire destroyed a Miller County home, along with at least 2 vehicles and nearby outbuildings late Thursday night.

The first fire crews first were called to the home near Miller County Road 255 and CR 15 just after 11 p.m., after a neighbor spotted flames coming out of the garage of the 2-story wood-frame house.

The 2 people inside the home were woken up by the smell of the smoke and found the flames coming through the wall from the garage. They escaped unharmed.

Initial reports indicate water was not pumping correctly when firefighters first arrived. "Its a little difficult, because you have to shuttle water in and out, so it makes it takes a little longer to effectively fight the fire," explained Miller County Fire Marshal Garry Sumner. "The trees cause a little bit of difficulty. It takes a little longer to maneuver the trucks around them."

Fire crews were still on the scene more than three hours later working to get the flames under control. The house and surrounding structures are said to be a complete loss.

There is no word yet on the cause.
