A large fire destroyed a garage and threatened a home outside of Walterboro on Sunday.
Colleton County Fire and Rescue workers responded to a home on Crestview Lane just before 2 p.m. to find a fire burning a garage and 2 acres of woods. Firefighters said that a singlewide mobile home was also beginning to smoke on the outside. Neighbors said they heard a loud explosion immediately prior to noticing heavy smoke.
Crews worked for 25 minutes to extinguish the fire. The garage was destroyed, and so was the car inside, authorities said. A forestry tractor was requested to help contain the wood fire.
The mobile home suffered minor damage. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
