Around 10 p.m. on the evening of Thursday, February 18, the Waldron City Fire Department was dispatched to the scene of a multi-dwelling structure fire on Elm Street.
According to Waldron City Fire Chief Ken Overturf, the single-story, multi-family unit housed four families. “We were on the scene within three or four minutes, and the fire was already coming through the roof in several places.” Chief Overturf speculated that the fire started somewhere in the attic.
The four Garden Walk apartments were deemed a total loss. There were, however, no injuries.
The Red Cross responded and aided the displaced families. There is a donation site set up at Current Church, 1022 Hwy. 71 N. in Waldron for those affected.
