Little Rock Fire Dept. called to three fires in 19 minutes

Posted: Updated:

 

The Little Rock Fire Department was stretched thin Friday night.

Firefighters were dispatched to three separate fires within 19 minutes of each other.

The first call came in at 9:11 p.m. at the Stonecrest Apartments on Baseline Road.

The city previously said the complex wasn't up to code, citing safety and health concerns.

The apartments should have been cleared out as of Friday, but were not.

No one was injured.

Only 17 minutes later, the fire station received another call at Valley Drive and Geyer Springs Road.

Two minutes after that, they were called to a third fire at a home on Redwood.

At one point, half of the units in the city were dispatched to the different locations.

All three fires appear to be accidental.
