— The Wayne County Sheriff's Office issued a warning Wednesday to residents in Seven Springs to beware of solicitations.

Sheriff Carey Winders said an unknown person or group of people have been going door-to-door in Seven Springs neighborhoods asking for donations to the local fire department.

Winders said that while the Seven Springs Fire Department is planning a fundraiser for Oct. 1, the solicitations have nothing to do with the fire department's activities.

The sheriff advises against giving money if residents are approached and asks anyone who is approached to report it to authorities at
