05/February/2016 – Structure Fire – “A” Shift

An adult male safety escaped his burning home after he was awakened by a smoke alarm Friday morning 05-February. The fire started in a bedroom and spread to the hall. The man had been sleeping on the couch in the living room. The bedroom door was closed, which contained the flames until they burned through the door. Fire-Rescue was alerted at 04:58 and arrived four minutes later from Station 1, one and half miles away. Click here for more information.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Retired Firefighter James Farish of Hendersonville. We were notified yesterday afternoon of his funeral which was also held yesterday (02-February) at Herndon Funeral Home. Farish served as a Volunteer Firefighter in Colleton County for over 40 years. He joined the newly established Colleton Rural Firefighters Association in 1969 and was instrumental in organizing a Station in his community of Hendersonville to serve the southern portion of the county. The Hendersonville Rural Volunteer Fire Dept, which was the eighth station of the Volunteer Firefighter’s Association, was organized in 1974. Farish and other community members constructed their own station on the Lyons Property which is on Orchard Road near his home. The original station still stands today, but was replaced by the current Station 8 on Black Creek Road in the late 1990s. Farish was a dedicated and active member. He continued to serve until his health forced him to retire in 2011. He will be greatly missed. Mr. Farish was 79. Please remember his family in your prayers.
