West Columbia Fire Department on the scene of apartment fire where as many as 8 residents may be displaced

November 9, 2017

West Columbia, SC (Paul Kirby) - The West Columbia FD was on the scene of an apartment fire at Riverbend Apartments shortly after lunch Thursday. They have been assisted by departments from other agencies who responded under automatic aid agreements. Lexington County was on the scene as was the City of Columbia, and the Cayce Department of Public Safety. EMS also has personnel on standby and the police department is assisting. 


There are very few details right now. We do know that they have estimated that as many as eight apartments may have been damaged or destroyed and the American Red Cross is mobilizing to assist those families. There are no injuries reported at this time. 


West Columbia has also called for a fire investigator to respond almost as soon as the fire was under control. One currently is enroute from Lexington County’s Fire Service. 


The fire was officially placed under control at 2:15 p.m.
