Report of plane crash unfounded, fire chief says


Firefighters in Oconee County spent part of Sunday searching for a possible crash site after a 911 caller said an airplane may have crashed.

Fire Chief Charlie King said a camper called 911 around 4:30 p.m. and told dispatchers they saw a small plane in a dive and a short time later heard an explosion.

King said the crash was reported along a waterway near the Georgia- South Carolina state line.

The area crews were searching is near Cooper Road and Cleveland Pike Road.

King told WYFF News 4, crews searched on land and water for about 90 minutes and never found any evidence of a plane crash.

People living in the search area told search teams, one of the property owners in that area owns a "float" plane to travel between homes and they had seen him in the area prior to the 911 call.
