A Fayette County firefighter was transported from a fire scene after responding to a structural blaze late Thursday night.
According to Fayette County EMA Director Michael Singleton, units from the Fayette County Fire & Emergency Services responded to a neighbor’s report of a fire on Longview Road.
“Upon arrival, a large residence was found heavily involved with fire,” Singleton said in a statement on Friday morning. “The structure was reported to be unoccupied, and defensive firefighting operations were initiated.”
Singleton later said one firefighter was transported for a non-life-threatening injury.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
