Authorities investigating Jamestown house fire

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Jamestown Rural Fire crews are investigating a house fire on Cales Town Road in Berkeley County.  Red Cross also responded to the scene to assist the couple that was home at the time the fire started.

Officials say crews responded to a call at 2:30 a.m. Monday morning and upon arrival, firefighters saw smoke coming from the house.

The homeowners were sleeping when the smoke alarm woke them up.  A man said he didn't see fire, but got his wife and left the home.

Officials say it appears to be a stove fire that went up the hood of the stove and spread into the attic.  The kitchen has the worst damage.
