Multiple Fires In Madison County On SundayJan 16th, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Front Page
Sunday afternoon, January 16, 2011 was a busy time for firefighters in Madison County.
At 4 p.m., a structure fire was reported on Flowers Road, just south of Lovett Road. The Hamburg-Lovett Volunteer Fire Department responded with
mutual aid from Madison and Greenville fire departments.
The Florida Highway Patrol, Madison County EMS and the Florida Division of Forestry also were at the scene.
A vacant structure called the “Drink Box Building” was destroyed. Because no electrical power was connected to the building the state fire marshal was requested to determine the origin of the blaze.
Within 30 minutes of that call, a brush fire on U.S. Highway 90, west of the City of Madison was reported and a third call caused a response from the Cherry Lake Volunteer Fire Department to a brush fire on State Road 53, south of Garden Street.
No injuries were reported at any of the fires.
