Two days, two fires

From staff reports

Anderson County firefighters and other first responders were kept busy last week after separate blazes destroyed racecars and other items on Spaulding Lane, and a hay-filled barn on Hickory Grove Road.

The Hickory Grove Road fire included minor injuries to firefighters after a hose hit a barrel of pesticide, splashing one firefighter in the eyes and another in the mouth.

Both received assistance from EMS and were determined to be OK shortly afterward.
