HARRISON, Ark. -- A fire gutted part of a large business in Harrison, Arkansas Sunday morning. The fire inside Pace Industries, which creates aluminum die casts, created a tense challenge for firefighters.
"That metal, those types of pots, explode," said Harrison Fire Chief Marc Lowery. "They will blow hot, molten metal all over everybody. It's extremely dangerous."
Pace Division President Scott Conquest says the company worked with emergency responders over the years to make sure they knew where the danger spots were inside the building.
"So you had to get in there and put your water in a certain area," said Lowery. "You couldn't just get in there and just spray water everywhere."
