American Red Cross assists families displaced in Hot Springs' Village Square Apartment fire


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (American Red Cross) – Disaster Responders with the American Red Cross in Arkansas provided care residents after an early morning blaze destroyed 24 units at the Village Square Apartments, 200 Lakeland Drive, Hot Springs.

Red Cross is providing support for food, clothing and critical medication for those displaced, with the addition of emergency stay in hotels for 14 families totaling 30 individuals. Casework will continue with the remaining 15 residents to meet their emergency needs.

"22 of the 24 units were occupied,' stated American Red Cross in Arkansas Communications Officer, Brigette Williams. "If there is a small silver lining, it's that the apartment management required renter's insurance, which will provide additional help towards recovery."

My Town Hero nomination: Paula Ford

My Town Hero nomination: Paula Ford

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) – Volunteer firefighter Paula Ford, 45, of Hot Springs, has been nominated for THV11’s My Town Hero honor by Jackie Dorrell.

Dorrell said Ford is deeply committed to her community and has dedicated her time to saving the lives of those who are in it even in the face of her own tragedy. Dorrell told THV11 in her nomination letter that less than 24 hours after Ford lost her own child in a motorcycle accident, she was back out on the street, saving the life of someone else’s child.

“This truly is my idea of a hometown hero. Someone that not only volunteers to risk their life to save anothers but can do it while facing a very recent tragedy of their own,” said Dorrell. “I hope you will consider using Paula's story and choose her as a hometown hero for Hot Springs.”
