JOHNSON, AR -- An early afternoon fire caused extensive damage to a home in Johnson Wednesday.

Johnson, Fayetteville and Springdale fire departments all responded to a house fire on Foxwood Dr. The fire was reported around 12:30p.m. Crews say the homeowner called 911 after his wife noticed flames creeping from the yard toward their home.
   
The couple made it out in time and no one was hurt but the home is a total loss. Firefighters say the weather only escalated the situation and remind folks that's why the area is under a burn ban.

Firefighters tell us they don't know what started the fire.  It remains under investigation.
