Franklin County FireFighters Respond to Two Separate Fires

Franklin County firefighters were out in force Wednesday on two reports of fires.

In the first, Franklin County fire units responded to a house fire in the 100 block of Rue De Cason Way off Highway 320 in Carnesville.

The homeowner told authorities the fire started in the garage then spread to other parts of the house.

No one was hurt and firefighters were able to quickly bring the blaze under control.

And the Line Fire Department responded to a grass fire around 5:30p Wednesday afternoon on Highway 17 southbound near the Sunset campground and RV park.

One lane of 17 was shut down for a time as fire crews worked to put out the fire.

No word on how the fire started.
