WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - There was no immediate threat to people or the environment found at the site of a fire in Williamsburg County that involved two large sheds with herbicides, according to state health officials.

The fire happened at a home on Bloody Bucket Road in Greeleyville on Oct. 31 and led to a mandatory evacuation of homes within one mile of the fire which was contained within the same night.

On Wednesday, DHEC officials said their staff went to the site on Monday with the property owner and the local fire department.

“There’s still no known immediate threat to human health or the environment,” DHEC officials said in a statement."Once the cause of the fire has been determined, the property owner will arrange for cleanup activities to begin."
