Fire departments from multiple counties are working a house fire on the 300 block of Lake Lure Highway in Bat Cave. The fire happened around 2 p.m Thursday.
83-year-old Sara Lawter was doing laundry when the drier caught fire. She made it out safely, but everything she owned is gone.
The flames ingnited brush behind the property and quickly spread up the mountainside. The Forestry Service and a team from Hickory were called in to fight the flames from the air.
The community is rallying behind Sara Lawter to give her clothing and temporary shelter.
