In the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 22, the Mansfield Fire Department and the Huntington Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 808 Grove Street in Mansfield.

Responders had been called to this same address over the course of the past three days. Each time, members of the fire department were unable to locate the source of the smoke.

As a result of Wednesday’s fire, that home received extensive damage to one of the bedrooms, hallway and the second floor.

Due to the nature of the fire, Mansfield Police Chief Wayne Robb said he has turned the investigation over to the Arkansas State Police. Currently, the home has been taped off and is being treated as a crime scene.
