DFD & SCFR BATTLE COMMERCIAL STRUCTURE FIRE

Monday, October 1, 2012 10:00am DFD and SCFR were dispatched to a report of a structure fire at "The Shop" in the 1500 block of Donelson Parkway. First arriving units reported the structure to be fully involved upon their arrival. Highway 79 was closed for most of the day due to the department running supply line to a hydrant located on the opposite side of the road. Numerous units responded from all SC public safety agencies. The Red Cross was also on scene for firefighter rehab. One employee suffered burns to his hands and face during the fire, no other injuries were reported. The cause and origin are under investigation, however it appears to be accidental in nature. An estimated 150,000 gallons of water was used on the fire.
