Colleton County Fire-Rescue
Stations 6, 2, 12 and 22 responded to a house fire at 322 Gobbler Circle in the Turkey Hill Community on Thanksgiving Day at 1049. Neighbors reported seeing smoke coming from the residence at this location. Engine 6 and Medic 6 arrived in 5 minutes advising smoke visible from the roof and a window on the "B" side of the single story structure. Firefighters made entry with one 1-3/4" hand line and quickly knocked the fire in the living room down. Crews overhauled the wall and ceiling around the chimney. The fire originated in the wall on both sides of the chimney and extended into the attic. Crews pulled the interior and exterior walls around the chimney to insure there was no further extension.
Units remained on scene for 1-1/2 hours. One woman was treated at the scene by Firefighter-Paramedics for respiratory difficulty. She did not wish to be transported to the hospital.
