I received this email from John Robinson at the National Weather Service office in North Little Rock. This explains the problems they are having with this particular fire.
"The fire that began Tuesday of last week is the one that flared up again
today. One reason the Guard is having so much trouble fighting this
fire is that it is on the range, where there are unexploded shells and
other duds. They can't put people up close to fight the fire because of
exploding shells. Capt. Heathscott said if you get near the fire, it's
easy to hear the shells going off."
