A single story garage with a vehicle inside burned down around 4:30 p.m. today near a home on the 11100 block of Old Franklin Turnpike between Holliday Lane and Old Salem School Road in Franklin County.
According to Glade Hill Fire Chief Allen Richards, one-fourth an acre of woods also was on fire.
He said that the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it seems that a barrel of burning leaves may have turned over to cause the fire, which spread to the detached garage.
Glade Hill Volunteer Fire Department with T-4B and Engine 4 and Cool Branch Volunteer Fire Department with Engine 4 quickly worked to extinguish the blaze. Franklin County Public Safety vehicles also responded.
