Fire Destroys Building on Hilltop Circle

July 27, 2017

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services responded to a structure fire last night at approximately 9:45 at 1125 Hilltop Circle, located off Reinhardt College Parkway, in Canton.

Firefighters arrived on the scene to find the one-story building fully involved. According to Battalion Chief, Mark Orr, there didn’t appear to be any power connected to the building. The out building appeared to be used for storage and no one was inside the building at the time of the fire.

Cherokee County firefighters extinguished the fire; however, the building was completely gutted by the blaze.

A Cherokee County Fire Investigator continues to investigate a cause of the fire. No injuries were reported and one lane of Reinhardt College Parkway was blocked until the fire operation was complete.
