SEABROOK ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

American Red Cross disaster-trained volunteers assisted a family of six, two adults and four children, whose home, located on Stuart Point Road, Seabrook, was destroyed by fire just after midnight Sunday morning.

The Burton Fire Department responded to the blaze.

This was the fifth major home fire in the Lowcountry, and the third in Beaufort County, to which the Red Cross has responded over the weekend.

The Red Cross provided financial assistance for food, clothing, and temporary lodging, as well as comfort kits containing personal hygiene items, and referrals to partner agencies to help with the family's long-term recovery.
