Another Texarkana house fire blamed on fireworks

Posted: Updated:
TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) -

Fireworks are being blamed for another fire in Texarkana, this time at a vacant house on the Arkansas side of the state line.

The blaze in the 1400 block of Community Street heavily damaged the house and destroyed two outbuildings.

Fire Marshal Stephen Johnson says it was caused by fireworks that had been set off in the area by some kids.

There were no injuries reported.

Friday's fire follows a deadly blaze on the Texas side of the city late Thursday night that is believed to have been sparked by fireworks that had been thrown in a trash can before they were completely extinguished.

Several fires in nearby Liberty Eylau on Thursday have also been blamed on fireworks, including two that damaged homes.
