Saturday turned into a busy day for firefighters with Lawrence County Fire, and Rescue.

Lawrence County Fire and Rescue shared the following photos along with information on Sunday:

"Saturday proved to be a busy, but sad day for area fire departments as we responded to multiple structure fires. The first structure fire was dispatched just after 5:00 AM Saturday morning. First arriving units arrived on scene quickly to find that the structure was fully burned and almost on the ground. Units remained on scene for over 8 hours assisting local law enforcement, and Tennessee Fire Investigation Services with their investigation.

While units were still on scene at the first fire a second structure fire was reported in the county. First arriving units to the second structure fire found a large brick residence to be fully involved with a working wind driven fire. Multiple Lawrence County Fire Units operated on the scene along with automatic aid units from Lawrenceburg Fire Department, and mutual aid units from Giles County Fire Department.

Crews worked for several hours to extinguish the blaze. Water to the fire had to be supplied by a water shuttle operation from a fire hydrant a few miles away. An aerial water stream was also used in the extinguishment efforts.

During the second structure fire additional Lawrence County Fire Rescue units responded to the City of Lawrenceburg to assist with covering the City while City Fire units operated at the Campbellsville Pike fire.

While units were still operating on the 2nd Fire the Lawrenceburg Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire inside their City Limits, this was the 3rd structure fire reported Saturday. Units were able to quickly handle the 3rd fire.

At the end of the day multiple agencies both volunteer and paid from multiple counties worked together to provide on scene resources to each other while at the same time back filling areas where units had been pulled from. Teamwork goes a long way, and it’s hard to beat here in Middle Tennessee.

We ask everyone to remember those effected by these tragic fires. Unfortunately with all
the efforts put forth the families involved lost beloved family pets as well as their personal property, and homes filled with memories. Please join us in keeping these families in our thoughts and prayers. They will all likey need help in the coming days. We have no doubt that our great community will wrap its arms around them all to help them with their losses."
