Fire Scam Warning

Updated: Thursday, December 13 2012, 08:15 PM EST

Concerns about a bogus firefighter making calls to residents has authorities sending out a warning.

The Asheville Fire Department says someone is calling residents claiming to be an Asheville firefighter. The caller says there have been fires in the area and offers to do a home safety inspection. Fire officials warn they do not do inspections of single homes and say anyone who gets a call from the person should contact the authorities.

There has only been one report, but firefighters say that's enough to start notifying people.
