Quick response by several fire departments prevented an Acorn area home from total destruction Tuesday afternoon late. Kris Lyle of the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) said that Acorn, Ink, and Mena Fire Departments, as well as OEM, all responded and that the fire on Kodiak Lane just off US Highway 71 was confined to the master bedroom, attic, and outside wall. Lyle said the cause of the fire has not been determined but that the quick action of all the departments kept the damage to a minimum. Lyle added that the Polk County Sheriff's Office also assisted.
