Colleton County Fire-Rescue


Stations 1, 12, 19, and 24 responded to two buildings on fire at the intersection of Peurifoy Road and Gadsden Loop Wednesday 24-September at 13:30. Engine 19 arrived to report a storage building and small work shop well involved. It appeared the fires in both structures started from a grass fire. A doublewide mobile home on the property also received damage to the vinyl siding. Firefighters used one 1-3/4 hand line and a booster line to extinguish the fire. Despite a 6 minute response time, both buildings had already collapsed prior to the arrival of firefighters. Tenders provided the water supply for Engine 19. No one was injured in the incident.
Engine 1, Engine 19, Engine 24, Tender 1, Tender 19, Medic 19, Medic 27, Trucks 12 and 110 responded. Captain Tim Wojcik served as Incident Commander.
