At approximately 4:20 p.m., on Friday, May 13, the Madison 911 Center received a report of a brush fire in the Georgetown area of Madison.
Following the initial report, only a few seconds later, additional information determined that it was a structure fire that was also burning the tinder dry grasses nearby. Responding units found a storage shed, that was fully engulfed in flames, located behind 176 Tola McKinney Street.
Madison Fire Rescue and the Division of Forestry responded to the blaze and contained the fire to the shed and grass within 100 feet. Madison County Emergency Medical Services and law enforcement also assisted. No injuries were reported. The shed was a complete loss, but due to MFR and the Division of Forestry’s quick response to extinguish the flames, the fire was kept restrained and prevented from spreading into nearby homes.
