A Folly Beach home sustained thousands of dollars worth of damage after a fire Wednesday morning.
A spokesperson for the city says the external power service at a home on the 2200 block of Water Front shorted in the ground around 1:30 a.m., causing a fire.
Several units from Folly Beach Fire, Charleston Fire and James Island Public Safety responded and controlled the blaze quickly, Alan Kleinfeld said.
According to Kleinfeld, the fire caused $10,000 in damage.
"If the dwelling had been vacant it likely would have resulted in a large loss," Kleinfeld added.
No injuries were reported.
