A neighbor alerted 911 to a building on fire on Rehoboth Road (SC Highway 651) on May 10, 2024, at 2116. Engine 36 arrived minutes later to find the single-story wood frame residence well involved. They reported the roof had already collapsed, indicating the building had been on fire for some time. Firefighter-paramedics deployed two handlines to the building and had the fire knocked down within 15 minutes. Units were on the scene for two hours performing overhaul. It appeared the fire originated in the front room of the residence. The cause of the fire was under investigation. The home suffered substantial damage.
