Early morning fire affects family in Little Rock and Pine Bluff

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The joy of the holidays were halted for a southwest Little Rock neighborhood when an early morning fire resulted in the death of one resident. Two other persons at 8715 Verbena were injured after jumping to safety from the second story to escape a quickly moving fire. They were transported to a local hospital. The fourth person was unharmed.

American Red Cross Disaster Responders were on the scene in Little Rock providing comfort and disaster assistance of emergency housing, clothing and food to residents of the destroyed home. Three dogs were unharmed; a pet python died in the blaze.

Disaster Responders were also dispatched in Pine Bluff to provide benevolent care to the mother of the deceased.
