GREENWOOD, La. (KSLA) - Firefighters responded to reports of a fire at around 2:50 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21.

The Greenwood Fire Department, along with Caddo District #3 and #4, have been on the scene for the last couple of hours. Officials had to evacuate the area due to a chlorine leak from the building.
