In an effort to help celebrate the Conway Fire Department’s 100th anniversary in April of 2012, several of the department’s historic fires will be featured every month leading up to the planned festivities. The above photo captures what officials with the department call "one of the most disastrous fires in history." At 4 a.m. on February 6, 1982, firefighters responded to a call at the administration building at Hendrix College. The temperature was 13 degrees, and the water used to extinguish the fire froze before it hit the ground, transforming the area into a winter wonderland. The building was completely destroyed. Volunteer departments from Wescon, Beaverfork and Highway 286 assisted to help control the blaze. This is one of the many images on Conwaypedia, the Log Cabin’s online archive of photos and stories.
