Sunday’s fire wasn’t the only thing that kept Anderson County’s first responders busy.
In the span of a few hours firefighters and EMS responded to a total of seven incidents, including one involving two teenagers whose car flipped upside down in Hammond’s Creek.
Both teenagers were transported to area hospitals for precautionary purposes, EMS officials said, but were not seriously hurt.
The vehicle in which the teens were riding apparently went off a steep driveway, flipped and landed on the roof in the creek.
Battalion Chief Chad Womack of the Anderson County Fire Department said he was fighting the fire on Grafenburg Road when the Hammond’s Creek call came out around 5:30 p.m.
He said by the time he and other rescuers arrived, the two teens were already out of the creek.
They were transported by Anderson County EMS.
