Colleton County Fire-Rescue


Station 27 and Battalion 1 assisted the City of Walterboro Public Safety with a well involved house fire at 211 Blanchard Street Monday evening at 1943. Walterboro Engine 1 and County units Medic 27, Battalion 1 and Truck 11 arrived at the same time to find heavy fire conditions with the front of the single story residential dwelling well involved. County and City personnel made a quick knock down with one 1-3/4 handline. Crews then entered the structure through the front door and extinguished the fire in the front room of the building. Firefighters had the fire under control in less than 10 minutes, saving the structure. Crews remained on the scene for a little over an hour. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the City.  It was a very good coordinated effort by both departments.
