Firefighter-paramedics rescued a dog found inside this doublewide mobile home during an afternoon fire at 488 Jessie Lane Tuesday afternoon Nov. 15. At 3:20 p.m., a neighbor reported flames coming from the roof of the residence, located at the end of a rural cul-de-sac. The first engines arrived to find the home approximately 25% involved. After making entry through the front door, firemen found the dog inside the home and rescued the animal, bringing him safely outside and placing him in an animal carrier for his safety. The roof on the east side of the building had already burned away, but crews were able to quickly stop the advance of the flames, containing most of the damage to the bedrooms on the east end of the structure. The remainder of the home was saved, but suffered smoke damage. Crews were on the scene for three hours. The cause of the fire appears to be suspicious and is under investigation by the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office.
