05/December/2018 – Structure Fire – “C” Shift
Incident # 18-08418 – At 15:01 Tuesday 05-December,
Station # 7 received a report of a structure that had burned in the 500
block of Mohawk Court. Engine 7 and Medic 7 responded to the location and
found an abandoned single story residence already on the ground. The home
had not been occupied in five years and did not have power. The yard was
overgrown creating some access problems. Firefighters deployed two handlines
to finish extinguishing the remaining pile of smoldering debris. The home is
located on a sparsely populated small dirt road and approximately ½ mile
from Sunrise Road (SC Hwy 217). Crews were on the scene for 1-1/2 hours.
Tenders 7 and 18 responded for water supply. The cause is under
investigation, but is suspicious in nature. Anyone with information
concerning the fire is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (843)

Headquarters at (843) 539-1960.
