MIDWAY, Ark. (AP) - The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office and Arkansas State Police are investigating a home and vehicle fire as potential arsons in the Midway area.

A motorist reporting the fire flagged down a state trooper around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The house was ablaze when the trooper and the Midway Fire Department arrived at the scene.

An older couple known to live at the residence is unaccounted for.

A sheriff’s deputy found a pickup truck believed to be owned by the couple in a remote field around 8:30 a.m. Sunday. It had also been destroyed by fire and is being processed as a crime scene.

Investigators plan to search the house debris as soon as it’s safe to enter the structure.
