A Round O home was heavily damaged by fire on the morning of April 8. Colleton County Fire-Rescue was called to the fire at 17721 Round O Road April 8 at 8:16 a.m., the caller reporting flames coming from the window of the home. The first unit arrived to find light smoke coming from the singlewide mobile home. The occupant had used a garden hose and several buckets of water to knock down the flames, which gutted one bedroom, extended into the hall and damaged a second bedroom. Firefighters used a hand line to douse the room and remove the remaining burning materials. The fire started on a bed in the center bedroom. All occupants were able to safely exit the building and no one was injured. Fire units were on the scene for approximately an hour.
