Firefighters from three departments and Polk County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a fire call at approximately 8:20 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Carl’s Furniture in Potter next to the old Sale Barn, was in full blaze when members of Potter, Mena, and Hatfield Fire Departments arrived on scene. Sheriff’s Deputies were on scene to man traffic while firefighters had the northbound lane block due to the proximity of the building to Highway 71.
Firefighters were still fighting the blaze after 9 p.m. and no further details are available at this time. Stay tuned for further details as they develop.
