Simultaneous Calls Split Fire Department Forces at Two Blazes



After going weeks without any emergency calls, the silence was broken for the Scotland County Fire Department on Saturday afternoon as a pair of emergency calls were received simultaneously at the dispatch center.

A garage fire was reported on property owned by Mary Morgan, located on Route C, west of the Brock Station. The call was received at 3:01 p.m.

Minutes later a second call was received, reporting a grass fire on the Snodgrass property on Highway 136 west of Memphis.

One truck and three firemen responded to the grass fire, while the brunt of the department was dispatched to the structure fire north of town.

The grass fire was quickly brought under control by the firemen.

The blaze on the Morgan property destroyed the outbuilding and caused extensive smoke and fire damage to the adjoining mobile home, which was unoccupied.

The fire department indicated the blaze was likely electrical in nature, reporting that service had just been reconnected to both buildings recently as the owner had rented the property and tenants were planning to move in soon.

The department was on the scene for approximately 90 minutes.

The fire department was called back to the scene at 5:18 a.m. on Sunday morning, after the blaze rekindled. The mobile home was totally destroyed.
