TEXARKANA -- A Bi-State Justice Building Jail inmate, steaming about something, sent several fire trucks, from both sides of the city, streaming downtown, late Friday afternoon.
Fire units arrived in response to smoke in one of the jail's pods, said Capt. Christopher Bolden, Texarkana, Arkansas Fire Department Battalion Chief. He said it resulted from a disgruntled inmate setting various paper products on fire. He was not injured nor were any other inmates.
Firefighters were able to flush the smoke out and return to their units by 5:20 p.m.,
