Crews are still working to put out hotspots from a fire that began Thursday night on Glassy Mountain. Shortly before 8 a.m., crews with the Glassy Mountain Fire Department returned to their headquarters after spending the night on the mountain. New crews are being briefed and will be sent up to continue the fight. Friday morning, Ray Cassell, Fire Management Officer with the South Carolina Forestry Commission said, "There's a lot of work to be done today. We have crews coming in from all around the state.
