    HOT SPRING COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Firefighters are battling a fire in Hot Spring County.

    Sheila Doughty with the Arkansas Forestry Commission said the fire is off of Old Military Road; the Commission spotted the fire sometime Monday afternoon and called in for help. About five acres and a house have been caught up in the flames.

    A spokesperson with the Office of Emergency Management said the fire started in the woods, but investigators are not sure what caused it. They said it happened in a populated area on a narrow dirt road. They also said 10 structures were threatened, and one home is a total loss.

    OEM said no one was injured in the fire, but 10-15 firefighters are being treated for heat-related issues.
