NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Investigators are working to determine the cause of a Wednesday night fire in North Charleston that displaced two people.

North Charleston fire officials said crews responded twice to two separate fires at a home on Althea Avenue. The first fire was reported at 7:31 p.m.

Deputy Chief Stephanie Julazadeh said the first crews to arrive saw a fire at the back of the two story home.

“Firefighters arriving reported fire on the interior front of the home,” Julazadeh said. “Firefighters extinguished the fire and conducted a search.”

Everyone inside the home evacuated and no injuries were reported, she said.

Then at 9:09 p.m., operators received a 911 call reporting the same home was on fire again.

Authorities say a fire investigation into the origin and cause of both fires is in progress.
