      Firefighters fight afternoon car fire

      The Lee County Fire Department, Lee County Sheriff's Office and EMS responded to a call for a car fire near the Kinchafoonee Creek.

      Officials with the Lee County Fire Department say two teenage boys were listening to music in their car when the car caught fire near the Kinchafoonee Creek.

      Fire officials believe wiring from the car's stereo started the fire.
