Franklin County firefighters quickly put out a motor home fire Monday afternoon, but they found out in an unusual way.
Shortly before 12:00 p.m., a fire ignited on Roberta Road near Road 36. Before dispatchers got ahold of the fire department, someone walked into their fire station and told them a motor home was on fire.
Firefighters rushed to the home about a half-mile away as the dispatch center asked them to respond.
The motor home was a complete loss. The fire was confined to that area.
No one was injured. According to Chief Mike Harris with Franklin County Fire District #3, the fire was an accident. He said the homeowners were boiling chicken in a propane heated pot. It knocked over and it ignited some nearby brush.
