Units from Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services responded to a structure fire call shortly before 10 a.m. Friday at 640 Lakeside Drive in Canton, in the Whispering Pines Mobile Home Park.

Firefighters arrived on the scene to find two mobile homes on fire. One of the mobile homes was already completely burned and the other was still on fire. Firefighters quickly extinguished both fires. Both of the mobile homes appeared to be vacant with no power or natural gas. The fire from one of the mobile homes was approaching the nearby railroad tracks. However, the firefighters were quick to extinguish that fire.

No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
