Glynn County firefighters are responding to a fire at a small wood-frame home off of Lawrence Road on St. Simons Island, Division Fire Chief Wendell Knighted said at 2:29 p.m. Wednesday.

Because of the open area surrounding the house fire, county firefighters have alerted firefighters from the Georgia Division of Forestry that possible assistance may be needed with brush fires, Knighten said.

This is a developing situation and further information will be provided.
