CLINTON, Tenn. — With firefighters working in extreme temperatures, several had to be treated for heat-related symptoms on the scene while combating a blaze on July 4, an Anderson County Sheriff's Department report indicates.

And members of one department that went to the Leach Lane blaze had back-to-back responses, going from there to a trailer fire in the Briceville area, said Tony Errington, chief of the Briceville Volunteer Fire Department.
