(PRESTON) – Several booths were destroyed after a fire tore through a building at the Franklin County Fair Wednesday. A vendor selling Navajo tacos and scones had their cooking oil catch on fire. The vendors attempted to put out the fire with a small extinguisher but the flames then spread to three other booths. One man was transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation. The fair will continue to run through this Saturday in Preston.
