Several homes in a Lancaster County active-adult retirement community caught fire in a massive blaze Thursday afternoon, according to Lancaster County Fire Rescue.

Fire Rescue director Darren Player said he believed four homes were involved in the fire in Sun City Carolina Lakes just before 5 p.m. Player said several of the houses were destroyed.

Firefighters were still battling the blaze at 4:55 p.m. Thursday.

No injuries have been reported, Player said.

Player said five fire departments, including a North Carolina team, responded to the blaze, which Player said started from a brush fire.

He said the homes in Sun City are surrounded by pine straw, which he warned could be dangerous.
