EDISTO ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Firefighters say they expect to remain on the scene of an early-morning commercial structure fire for most of the day.

The fire was reported at the Builders FirstSource store in the 700 block of Highway 174 at 3:01 a.m., according to St. Paul Fire Department Chief Larry Garvin.

He said the fire was “fully involved” when the first crews arrived on the scene.

“When I came across the McKinley Washington Bridge, it looked like sunrise, because the fire was up in the air,” he said.

Officials say the fire broke out at a Builders FirstSource store and that the road is blocked while they contain the fire.

Garvin says there were no injuries, but the entire building was lost to the fire which they have since contained.
