Colleton County Fire-Rescue


A two alarm fire occurred at 1064 Clover Hill Road at 0021, Sunday 19-April.  Fire units from Station 6 in Green Pond arrived within minutes and found half of the doublewide mobile home engulfed in flames. Fire was shooting 30 feet into the clear night air. Firefighters determined that all occupants were safely out of the dwelling and began to attack the flames with two 1-3/4 hand lines. Firefighters worked inside the structure for approximately 15 minutes before being driven outside by the intense fire. Crews worked from the exterior for another 20 minutes before the fire was knocked down enough to safely reenter the building to finish extinguishing the remaining fire.  The second alarm was issued for manpower and Tenders. Water supply was established with truck to truck supply through a 3 inch supply line laid from Engine 6 down the long driveway.

About half of the structure was left standing, but the interior of the building received extensive damage. The family lost almost all of their belongings and had no insurance. The American Red Cross is assisting the family. The fire appears to have originated near the electrical box at the rear of the building. Twenty five firefighters were on the scene for over 3 hours.

Engine 6, Engine 19, Engine 22, Tender 1, Tender 2, Tender 6, Tender 19, Tender 22, Tender 25, Tender 27, Medic 6, Medic 19, Battalion 1 and Truck 12 responded. Engineer-EMT-I Heath Jones served as Incident Commander.
