Afternoon storms Wednesday likely contributed to fires, fallen trees and downed power lines in Forsyth County, authorities said. The Forsyth County Fire Department responded to four house fires and several other incidents as the storms rolled through, Division Chief Jason Shivers said. “On three separate occasions during the evening, our fire department was completely committed,” Shivers said.
