Thanksgiving is near

Next week many folks will be cooking a bit more for the holiday. Many home fires start in the kitchen so safe cooking practices and readiness to extinguish a flash fire from a stovetop or oven can save your dinner and home. There are several techniques to stop a fire like this with the smother method. A lid, baking soda, or a fire extinguisher are all good methods for quick extinguishment of an oil or grease fire. The reason those things work so well is because WATER IS BAD ON A GREASE OR OIL FIRE! And remember to call 911 as quick as you can!

Be prepared, act quick, stay safe!

Veterans Day 2023

Veteran’s Day – For all of you who have served our country, we say THANK YOU!

Here are a few of our folks who have joined the ranks in our nation’s military service.

Structure Fire at Kanis Road Near Carnation Lane

WPFD is out on a structure fire this morning near Kanis Road and Carnation Lane. Fire operations are underway and we have the road completely blocked for tanker operations at Kanis and Carnation.Lane. Please detour using Hwy 9 for a few hours since the road is blocked.

Update 6am: The road is now open.

Big THANKS to the many Fire Departments out to assist us on this call. With no water hydrants close enough (something really needed for a big fire fight) we had The Pulaski County tanker Taskforce bringing extra water to the fire and some extra manpower to this call to knock it down. Thanks Crystal Fire, East Pulaski Fire, North Pulaski Fire, Little Rock Fire, Collegeville Fire, Arch Street Fire, Lake Maumelle Fire, and Paron Fire
