HOT SPRINGS — The historic Majestic Hotel in Hot Springs — which was closed in 2006 — has caught fire.
Fire Chief Ed Davis told The Sentinel-Record that the fifth floor of the vacant hotel was on fire Thursday.
A fire department dispatcher said the cause of the fire was not known. Fire department officials did not immediately return a phone call seeking further comment.
The hotel was built in 1882 and was closed in 2006 after operating for 124 years and was recently boarded up after city officials determined that it was uninhabitable.
