Cherokee County firefighters climbed to the roof of the structure to check the area around the chimney.

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services responded to a structure fire at 6295 Yellow Creek Road yesterday afternoon at approximately 4:45.

Firefighters arrived on the scene to find smoke coming from the one story structure. The fire was coming from around the chimney area and had gone into the attic. Firefighters were able to contain the fire before it did any major damage to the home.

A 74 year old male that was residing at the house was treated for smoke inhalation and was treated on the scene. He refused transport to an area hospital to be evaluated further.

Both lanes of Yellow Creek Road were blocked until the clean-up operation was complete. No other injuries were reported.
