CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A woman who lived in a home destroyed by fire late Monday night said she was asking for all the prayers she could get.

Firefighters responded to a home in the 700 block of Deas Hill Road in McClellanville shortly after 10 p.m. A photo from the fire department showed flames shooting from the house.

Firefighters worked to save the home but were unsuccessful. By Tuesday morning, the smell of smoke remained in the air.

The woman, who lived in the home for nearly 20 years, said she saw the flames and was able to get everyone out of the house. She says she is thankful to be alive.

No injuries were reported, but one occupant was taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to the Awendaw-McClellanville Fire Department. 

Fire investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
