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.

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