All fire reports are held at Station #1. Fire reports will only be distributed to homeowners / renters or legal services and may be picked up during regular business hours.
The open burning of materials in the city is controlled by federal regulation and state statute. The city's ordinance 5.18.12-16 establishes specific details for the process of open burning on a day-to-day basis. The city's Central Dispatch Center issues permits and instructions.
Arkansas law prohibits most outdoor burning, but there are certain exceptions. Please contact the Fire Department for specifics.
