Old Mill Fire Causes Little Damage

By December 18, 2008

Follow me on:

Only the roof was damaged in the fire that was started at the historic Old Mill on Tuesday night. Police believe arson was to blame for the fire, but don't yet know who or why.

The night of the fire, a BMW was observed pulling up outside the Old Mill with two men from the car entering the park and leaving a few minutes later. Soon after, the police cars and fire trucks arrived on the scene.

The roof of the mill is actually not part of the original structure.

The Old Mill was featured in Gone With the Wind and recently the 75th anniversary of the sight was celebrated. It's a popular North Little Rock tourist spot. You can read more about it or see photographs (taken before the fire).
