Firefighters from Mt. Weisner, Spring Garden and Piedmont responded to a structure fire on Cherokee County Road 67 near County Road 6 just after 11 a.m. Tuesday.
According to Piedmont Fire Chief Mike Ledbetter, when their tanker truck arrived on the scene, the building, which appeared to be an old garage, had completely burned except for three block walls that were still standing.
He added the fire had spread 20 to 25 yards in the woods.
The woods fire was extinguished but not much could be done for the building, which is located on an old home place. No one has apparently lived there for several years.
