A fire Wednesday afternoon caused serious damage to a home on Webster Lane in Clinton.

The ACSD incident report indicates that one of them opened the door to the other side of the house, which uses the address of 110 Webster Lane, and saw flames and smoke. The pair evacuated the home without injury. The fire was extinguished by the Claxton Volunteer Fire Department. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
