Roland Fire Destroys Workshop, Tractors, Tools


A fire on Roland’s north side Monday destroyed a workshop, three tractors, three lawnmowers and the tools in the shop, then spread to and damaged an adjacent but unoccupied building.

Roland Fire Chief James Edwards said the Roland Fire Department was dispatched at 10:15 a.m. Monday to the fire. Also dispatched were the Muldrow and Liberty Fire Departments.

“When we arrived we found the workshop fully engulfed,” Edwards said. “Then it spread to the adjacent building but we were able to get it stopped.”

Firefighters were on the scene until 1 p.m. Monday.

Edwards said there were no injuries as a result of the blaze, and the owner did have insurance.

Edwards said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The fire was at 402 Garrison Creek Rd., on Roland’s north side.
