HOT SPRINGS — A Hot Springs deputy who was injured while helping residents to safety from a burning apartment building has been released from the hospital.

Earlier this week, a blaze ignited at the Village Square Apartments. Sgt. Roy Williams with the Garland County sheriff's office suffered first- and second-degree burns after pieces of a burning ceiling fell on him. He was taken to a local hospital but has since been released.

The Sentinel-Record reported that Williams will visit an Arkansas burn center for follow-up treatments.

At least 45 residents were displaced by the fire, and American Red Cross volunteers have helped in finding food, clothing, and shelter for them.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
