HARRISON, Ark. -- An industrial building caught fire early Sunday morning. It happened at Pace Industries, just along the U.S. 65/62 bypass. It took crews two hours to put out the blaze.
Krooked Kreek volunteer fire fighter Rick Roberts helped fight the flames at the place he once worked years ago.
"No one would ever thought we'd see this. This is one of our major employers in town," he said.
The building is 380,000 square feet. The entire roof caught fire, damaging about half of it. Large smoke plumes were seen from miles away.
"One side of the building, at least half way down, had smoke plumes coming out," said Tom Batson with the Red Cross.
Harrison Fire Chief Mark Lowery says this was a very difficult fire for crews to put out. The building is industrial and he says there was a lot of metal they couldn't put water on.
