Shed destroyed by fire in Pine Grove area Tuesday afternoon
Pine Grove, SC (Paul Kirby) – A large shed was destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon in the Pine Grove area of the county. The call came in after noon, sending firefighters rushing to the scene on Hoover Lane. This is off Kitti Wake near White Knoll Middle School.
When the first fire service resources pulled up, they reported that they had a medium sized shed burning. According to the ranking firefighter’s report, as much as 25% of the building was already consumed by the fire. More fire equipment and manpower began to arrive and they pulled their attack lines and began to douse the flames. In a very short time, they had brought the fire under control. Sadly, the structure was destroyed as a result of the blaze.
According to Jennifer Jackson, a follower of The Ledger, the building was a workshop that was her father’s. Multiple friends and acquaintances were offering the family their support and prayers via social media after the loss. The fire service hasn’t said what caused the fire and it appears as if no one was injured as a result of the blaze.
