At about 10:30 a.m., the Arkadelphia Fire Department was dispatched to the West Pine Street business, where a red van had apparently had an electrical issue that caused the fire. 

No injuries were reported, and the business sustained no damage despite the vehicle being parked just outside the entrance.
