Colleton County Fire-Rescue


Stations 5, 24, 26 and 27 responded to a kitchen fire at 450 Knights Ave at 1105 Friday morning 2-April. Engine 26 arrived to report light smoke coming from the single story wood frame dwelling. Firefighters deployed one 1-3/4 handline and found a fire inside the stove. It appeared the resident had set the unit to self clean, but forgot some items were inside the stove. Firefighters removed the stove from the building and were able to extinguish the fire in the front yard. The stove suffered substantial damage, however there was no extension in the structure. Crews used a PPV fan to evacuate the smoke from the residence. Everyone was able to safely exit the building.

Engine 26, Tender 5, Tender 24, Tender 27, Medic 27 and Truck 111 responded. Battalion Chief Marty Stallings served as Incident Commander.
