Fire spread from a boat to the exterior of a home Tuesday night, causing some damage, said Tom Jenkins, Rogers fire chief.
Fire broke out on the seat of a fishing-style boat at 9:15 p.m. Tuesday at 510 S. 13th St. The radiant heat from the fire then caught the adjacent home’s soffit on fire, Jenkins said.
Flames were showing when firefighters arrived, according to a Fire Department report. Fire spread to the attic before firefighters put it out, Jenkins said.
No one was injured.
Damage to the 1,348-square-foot home was light, Jenkins said. Damage to the home is estimated to be about $5,000, but the boat is a total loss, he said.
The house has an estimated value of about $84,000, according to Benton County property records. It is owned by Ira and Nancy Canoy of Springdale, according to property records.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, Jenkins said.
