Man, 3 pets, escape early morning Berkeley County fire
BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) —
A man and three of his pets were able to escape a fire that consumed a mobile home on Compton Drive early Monday morning.
Unfortunately, we're told one pet did not make it out.
Officials on scene say the home is a total loss.
Crews from Whitesville Fire Department, Goose Creek Fire, and the Pine Ridge Fire Department were dispatched to the call just before 6 a.m., a Berkeley County dispatch supervisor confirmed.
A portion of the mobile home was melted and turned black by the intense fire.
Compton Drive was blocked as of 7 a.m. as crews continued to spray water on the still smoking home.
There's no word yet what started the fire.
