Well, its been busy lately and I haven’t been able to blog much.

But these photos are cool, and the son of a co-worker snuck into a very dangerous area to take them. Here’s some info about the Fort, and the fire taken from KTHV’s website.

Officials: Fort Chaffee Fire Accidental

Sebastian County officials say a fire that destroyed 150 vacant World War II-era barracks and warehouses at the old Fort Chaffee army post started accidentally.

Sebastian County Judge David Hudson said witness interviews and burn patterns from the Wednesday morning fire showed the blaze wasn’t intentionally set as initially suspected. Investigators said the fire likely started after high winds knocked down a power line.

The army post was deactivated and turned over to the Arkansas National Guard in the 1990s and about 6,000 acres was declared surplus for private development. The fire occurred on the surplus property.
