Child burned, mother injured in mobile home fire Friday morning

Sharpe’s Hill, SC (Paul Kirby) – A child has been burned and a mother is being treated for smoke inhalation after fire destroyed a mobile home on Doe Trail off Hwy 6 shortly before 3:30 a.m. Friday morning. Firefighters received the call at 3:22 a.m., and when they arrived on the scene at 3:31, they found the home well involved in fire.

According to Harrison Cayhill, a spokesman for Lexington County, the child that was burned by the fire has been flown by Lifenet helicopter to the Southeastern Burn Institute in Augusta, Georgia for treatment. The mother of the child is being treated at a local medical facility for smoke inhalation injuries.

Firefighters were on the scene well into the early morning hours wetting down hot spots, and mopping up the fire. There was also a fire marshal on the scene, and agents from the SC Law Enforcement Agency (SLED) were enroute to assist in a cause and origin investigation because of the significant injuries to the child.

This does not necessarily indicate that the cause of the fire is suspicious in nature. It simply is standard operating procedure in a case where someone is either seriously injured or killed in a fire in Lexington County.

We will continue to update this story as additional information becomes available from the county or the state.
