Local residents should be aware of a possible scam in this area, where the caller identifies as being with the “local” fire department, asks for money for families in need, for loss of a home due to structure fire or other similar type disasters, according to Doug Campbell, Lincoln County EMA director and Lincoln County fire chief.

Campbell said Lincoln County Volunteer Fire Rescue and Fayetteville City Fire Departments are not calling local residents asking for money or for anything else.
