SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

A fire ripped through a Summerville home early Wednesday, leaving a family of three homeless just before the holidays.

Officials with the Old Fort Fire Department said firefighters responded to the home on Trickle Drive, off West Butternut Road, around 4:30 a.m.  Summerville Fire Department crews also responded to the scene.

A family of three were at the home at the time of the fire.  The mother, who is pregnant, and the daughter, who suffers from severe asthma, were taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Investigators believe the fire started in the garage before spreading through the rest of the house, but the cause is still under investigation.

The home was badly damaged on the inside and outside.
