What happened to/in the town in July 1896?[edit]

There is this curious headline in the Sunday July 19, 1896 edition of the New York Tribune Negro Incendiaries Burn Town.Lead... "Destruction of Malvern Ark - One of the Criminals Caught and Lynched" The one paragraph story reads...

"Malvern Ark July 18 - This whole town was wiped out by fire early this morning. The blaze was started in four different places by colored fiends, one of whom was afterward caught and lynched. The loss is nearly $400,000. Intense excitement prevails."

Does anyone know what happened? This rather sensational story is not reflected in the article. I will look around in some other newspaper archives and see if I can find any answers. -Ad Orientem (talk) 17:51, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
