Bartow County Fire Department on Wednesday worked a fire that damaged the ductwork at Barnsley Gardens.

According to BCFD, the blaze began just before 2 p.m. in the HVAC system in the kitchen of 597 Barnsley Gardens Road. About $5,000 in damages was reported, all of it to the heating and air system of the kitchen area.

No one was injured and fire personnel were back in service by 4 p.m.

BCFD also worked a furnace fire at 5-A Briarwood Lane in the early hours of Wednesday.

The blaze, which occurred about 2:15 a.m., was contained to the apartment and consisted mostly of heavy smoke.

No one was injured, but the Red Cross assisted the family due to the lack of heating in the apartment.
