Colleton County sent one crew (B/C Scott Feather, FF/Paramedic Jack Wimberly, FF/EMT Bryon Martinson and FF/EMT Jason Benton) to work a period from 23:00 Monday to 07:00 Tuesday. They mainly operated a City of Florence Ladder Truck through the early morning hours. The crew returned to the County Tuesday. The operation saved a large portion of the building, however other area of the structure suffered heavy damage.
