Woods fire destroys Hot Spring County home

HOT SPRING COUNTY (KATV) - A woods fire has destroyed a home in Hot Spring County, spreading over five acres.

Authorities tell Channel 7 News the fire threatened 10 homes. Firefighters have since contained the blaze so it will not threaten any other homes but, at last check, they were still fighting the fire at the house on FG Jones Road, about one mile from the Saline County line.

The destroyed home was occupied but there have been no reports of injuries. A number of firefighters did have to be treated for heat.
