CFD: 3 injured in West Ashley house fire

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Fire crews battled a house fire in West Ashley that injured three people Monday afternoon. 

Two are still recovering in the hospital including an eight-year-old child. 

"I thought we were having a big earthquake or something till I heard the screams," Gail Carroll, a neighbor of the fire victims, said.

Carroll said she felt a rumble and came outside where she saw the flames. She said she tried to help the young girl sitting in the yard.

"She was crying and I walked over there and there was probably about two layers of her skin had been burned, and her feet were very bloody and fire ants started crawling on her so I picked her up and I took her across the street," Carroll said.

The fire broke out on Camelot Drive near Old Town Road according to Charleston Fire officials.
