Amazon center in Little Rock catches fire



Little Rock, Arkansas – On Thursday afternoon, the Little Rock Fire Department helped after a small fire broke out at an Amazon fulfillment center.

The fire originated around 12:00 p.m. from one of the facility’s storage shelves and burned a 4-foot by 4-foot area in the center, according to an LRFD official.

No one was hurt and the fire was put out quickly by the building’s sprinkler system, but they found difficulty with the system turning off, officials said.

According to fire officials, the ventilation fans were not hooked up, so fans were brought in to get the remaining smoke out.
