A shed fire on Aetna Street.

Rogers police went to an abandoned house on Aetna Street looking for a man with a warrant. While they were trying to make contact, a man came out of the shed and officers saw that the shed was on fire, said Keith Foster, spokesman for the Rogers Police Department.

The Rogers Fire Department extinguished the fire and transported the man to the hospital. Police have not released the man's identity.

The fire is the third in Rogers in two days. Officials said two previous fires, one at a shed and one in a train car, were suspicious.
