May 19, 2018

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Lexington County officials are now saying that last night’s fire at the Lakeland Apartments in Lexington killed a family’s dog and displaced 15 people. Three of the housing units received heavy fire damage and three others received smoke and water damage after fire, EMS, and the police responded to the apartment building fire in the 200 block of Old Chapin Road just before 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
