Colleton County Fire-Rescue


17/November/2021 - Structure Fire - "B" Shift

Incident # 21-08246 - Fire-Rescue was dispatched to a reported residential fire in the 100 block of Nottingham Lane in the Roadside Community Wednesday afternoon 17-November at 12:19. First arriving units noted the home was not involved, however an open air car port and two out buildings were fully involved. A pump house was on fire, a debris pile was well involved and an approximately one acre grass fire was burning in a field next to the home. Firefighter-Paramedics deployed multiple hand lines to combat the fires and to protect the residence. The two out buildings had already collapsed and the roof of the car port fell shortly after arrival. Crews were able to save the pump house and quickly brought the grass fire under control. No damage was noted to the single family dwelling. Unfortunately, a classic car, a 1967 Ford Galaxie was destroyed in the fire. The owner purchased the car new over 50 years ago. The cause of the blaze was a yard debris fire that got out of control. No injuries were reported. Fire units were on the scene for two hours. 

Engine 6, Engine 13, Tender 1, Tender 6, Tender 8, Tender 13, Tender 22, Medic 1, Medic 6, Medic 13, Car 103, Car 112, Car 117, Car 118 and Car 119 responded. Captain Joseph Holmes served as Incident Commander.
