No injures were reported in an afternoon structure fire on Paradise Circle in Mayflower on Tuesday.
Mayflower police and firefighters were called out to a housefire at 32 Paradise Circle just after 1 p.m.
Lt. Wesley Tyra said a woman was burning leaves and had gone back inside the house with her two children when the fire spread.
"A neighbor alerted her that her house was on fire and she was able to get out with her two kids safely," he said. "She had been burning leaves in the front yard. She thought the burn ban had been lifted."
Officer Dalton Elliott said it did not appear the house was seriously damage.
"Based on what we know now, it appears to only have exterior damage," he said Tuesday afternoon.
Faulkner County is among 65 other Arkansas counties that remains under a burn ban. Burn bans are issued and lifted by county judges.
Mayflower Fire Chief Joshua Woods said he cautions residents not to burn anything outdoors until the burn ban is lifted.
