House Fire On Mountain View Street – HOT SPRINGS

Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops responded to the call for a structure on Mountain View Street just North of Avery Street right before midnight Monday.

At least 4 engines, 2 rescue trucks and the shift commander arrived quickly.  Smoke was rolling out from the eaves of the house when I arrived.  A ladder was put up to an upper level access point where a firefighter went up there with what looked to be a heat finder monitor type of handheld device.

Firefighters laid out, hooked up and charged a hydrant line, but I never saw water used from my location.

It is unknown to me whether the house was being lived in or was occupied at the time of the fire.  I did not hear any mention of injuries in connection to this fire.

This block of Mountain View Street was closed for at least 2 hours during this operation.
