The Springdale Fire Department is investigating what caused a house and garage to go up in flames early Sunday morning.

Crews say the home and garage went up in flames just after 1:30 am. When firefighters got to the scene, the home was burning so badly they couldn’t get inside and had to fight the flames from the outside.

Springdale Battalion Chief James Hales says the home —located on Ewalt Avenue — had been vacant for a while and they don’t believe anyone was in the home. Firefighters say home is now a total loss.

Crews also ran into problems because of the cold weather.

“We did have some water supply problems with hydrant at the end of Ewalt.” Chief Hales told us. “It was frozen, so we had to take water from a different hydrant.”

Firefighters are still investigating what caused the fire. Crews will be back out to take another look at the scene once the sun is up.
