Oak Grove, SC (Paul Kirby) – A fire damaged a home on Sycamore Tree Road in the Oak Grove area Monday afternoon. The fire was reported just before 5:30 p.m.
Firefighters from a number of stations responded with engines and water tankers to fight the blaze. There were fire hydrants in the area but those were too far away to use effectively. First arriving officers reported that light smoke was coming out of all the doors of the house when they arrived. The fire crews suited up, entered the home, and in a short period brought the fire under control.
Lexington County hasn’t released the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage to the home. The utilities were disconnected by Dominion Energy at the request of the firefighters until the home can be evaluated.
