Two home fires in two weeks in remote part of Oconee

Fires have heavily damaged two homes in a remote part of northern Oconee County in the past two weeks, but one fire fighter says there are no indications one fire is connected to the other. The latest was last evening on Clearwater Cove where fire struck a three-story unoccupied house. On May 31, a nearby fire devastated a newly-built home on Keowee Bay Circle. The owners had hoped to move into the house the following week.
