Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/STATON BREIDENTHAL --9/19/17-- A Little Rock firefighter walks past a smoldering trailer Tuesday afternoon after firefighters were called to the construction site for the new midtown clinic for Arkansas Specialty Orthopaedic and OrthoArkansas at Fair Park Blvd and i-630 to put out the fire.


Firefighters were able to put out a blaze at a construction site just south of Interstate 630 in Little Rock within 10 minutes of its start, according to a spokesman.

Capt. Jacob Lear-Sadowsky of the Little Rock Fire Department said the agency was called shortly before noon Tuesday to a fire off Fair Park Boulevard.

A trailer hauling insulation caught fire outside a multi-story commercial building still under construction, causing smoke to billow in the area, Lear-Sadowsky said.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the charred trailer by around 12:10 p.m.

No injuries were reported in the fire, and the cause had not been determined as of Tuesday afternoon.
