Fire burns water's edge

-A A +A
By Nancy Parsons

It was difficult determining just where the fire was as smoke could be seen behind TruVista down to the Post Office on Dearborn Street Thursday evening.

According to Great Falls Fire Department reports, the fire was between the river and the old railroad bed between Seaboard Street and the old depot.

The call came in at 3:56 p.m. as a grass and woods fire.

Volunteers from Rossville, Fort Lawn and Mitford Vol-unteer Departments responded along with the SC Forestry Commission.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire by soaking it with water.
