Fire log

Nov. 14

A power pole in the 400 block of East Hoadley Road snapped about 3 p.m. just outside the Pine Bluff Arsenal, triggering a wide-spread electrical outage involving 2,616 Entergy customers.

Much of White Hall was within the area impacted by the power failure.

Firemen were dispatched to East Hoadley after sparks from the power lines ignited a small grass fire, which was quickly extinguished.

An employee of Jefferson Regional Medical Center’s Wellness Center, 1600 West Holland, was trapped in an elevator between the facility’s two floors. Emergency Medical Technician Bill Beadle and Fire Chief Sandy Castleberry freed the employee after she had spent about 30 minutes in the elevator.

Firemen brought the elevator “down slowly” by releasing hydraulic fluid from its motor, and then unlocked the elevator doors.
