Scammers in Benton reportedly "condemning" homes

Columbia County first responders are warning residents about a possible scam targeting homes damaged from flooding.

Officials say individuals claiming to be workers from the state are telling Benton residents that their home needs to be condemned and they have to be kicked out.

According to first responders, this is a scam. Do not let them inside your home and call police if approached.

The North Mountain Volunteer Fire Company says Benton is still in a state of emergency.
