Funeral home to rebuild after Tyronza fire

TYRONZA, AR (KAIT) - Fire officials in Tyronza are investigating a fire that burned four buildings late Friday night. 

According to Tommy Baine with the Tyronza Fire Department, a funeral home and four vacant buildings were destroyed. The funeral home plans to rebuild, but no word has been heard on the other vacant homes that were burned.

Three of the buildings were at least 100 years old. Baine says because of the calm winds,  they were lucky the fire didn't spread.

Mayor Marion Bearden says the buildings were just put on the National Historic Register. Bearden says her city must move on, and already is "We have a new building, and we're going to be breaking ground on it across the street".

Firefighters from Tyronza, Trumann, Marked Tree and Lepanto all responded.
