At 8:50 pm, Wednesday, the Monticello Fire Dept. was paged out to the report of a house fire on Parkwod’s Elm Court, off of North Hyatt St.
It appeared that only minor damage was done to the trailer, thanks to the quick response of the first responders, who arrived at the Griffith St. address.
Around 9:15 Thursday night, a fire was reported at the Drew County Detention Facility.
Drew County Deputies and Monticello Fire Dept. firefighters were called to this rubbish fire, Monday afternoon, when the helpful workers forgot about the burn ban, and the fire got larger than expected.
The burn ban that is in effect for Drew County HAS NOT been cancelled, due to Friday night’s rain.
Please do not burn any items, until it is cancelled by the county judge and Forestry Commission.
Sunday afternoon, KARK/KLRT’s Jocelyn Tovar inerviewed Mike Fritts, who was trapped inside of Thursday’s wildfire.
As the report states, Mike will get to meet Ms. Gail and other emergency staff members, which he credits with saving his life, today, in a meeting set up by MLive.
Check back later for that video.
A countywide burn ban went into effect on Monday.
County Judge Robert Akin and OEM’s Michael Frisby, along with DCSO deputies, also were at the scene.
The first blase reportede was in the Valley & Greenill Fire Depts. area. They responded and put out the fire.
Next was a clear cut grass fire alonh HWY 35 West near the Cleveland County line. Rock Springs and Pansy firefighters were paged out to extinguish the fire, and the Arkanssa Forestry Commission sent a plow to keep the hot spots from spreading.
Collins-Cominto’s fire dept. also was busy, battling a barn firem on HWY 35 east.
Our appreciation goes out to the Drew County Firefighters.
Around 2 pm, the Monticello Fire Dept. was paged out to the report of a fire at this HWY 425 home.
Upon arrival, they were able to locate the fire, and contain it to the area of a ventilation fan motor.
The keyholder for the property complimented the Fire Dept. for their quick response and their ability to limit contain minor damage to only one room.
Major damage was done to the back of the structure.
No structures were harmed, and only an estimated acre of weeds was damaged.
