Colleton County Fire-Rescue
Station 1 was dispatched to a
reported woods fire in the 4000 block of Sniders Hwy, at 0604 Friday
morning 31-July. A man driving on Sniders Hwy reported seeing smoke and
flames well off the road in the woods. Engine 1 arrived and could also
see a large fire in the woods about ¼ mile off the highway. After
finding an access road, Engine 1 drove to a mobile home and then took a
narrow overgrown path into the woods to find a large triple wide mobile
home that had already burned almost completely down. A structural
assignment was dispatched, but the home was already a complete loss.
Firefighters were on the scene for approximately two and half hours
performing overhaul and investigating the fire. The home was not
occupied at the time of the fire and was used as rental property.
