FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - West Florence Fire was called to a reported outdoor fire around 2:49 p.m. on Golden Way.

Fire Chief Larue Hendrix arrived on scene to find that a power line had fallen down and shorted out causing a grass fire.

The fire burned up to the wall of a home and also threatened a residential gas line. Fire crews got control of that fire with two brush trucks, a tanker and one engine from the city of Florence.

The home and gas line were not damaged. Duke Energy responded to repair the power line.
