October 6, 2004 Fire

When Maumelle firefighters arrived to investigate a fire alarm October 6, 2004 at the 10-story Audubon Pointe Retirement Community, they found smoke showing from a fifth-floor apartment and some residents perched at their windows looking for clean air to breathe. Acting Captain Charles Watson immediately struck a second alarm, bringing two engine companies from the North Little Rock Fire Department for assistance.

Once on the fifth floor, firefighters found an Audubon Pointe maintenance man holding the fire in check by spraying water into the apartment from the hallway. Firefighters then made entry into the apartment, searching for the seat of the fire and extinguishing it.

While an attack team extinguished the fire in the apartment, other firefighters began evacuating residents of the building down stairways. A more comprehensive room to room search was conducted on the fire floor with firefighters searching every apartment for occupants who may have been unable to escape.
