MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Firefighters throughout the Lowcountry and the state are continuing to respond to wildfires.
On Thursday afternoon, firefighters helped to put out fires before reaching homes in Colleton County and rescued three dogs in Berkeley County.
One Lowcountry man says he wants to thank those firefighters for their help.
Jonathan Rentz was driving home when he noticed some smoke in the distance.
"I wasn't aware of the fire when I came home from work," Rentz said. "I went to run in the backyard because I knew I had a dog in a kennel."
Little did he know his dogs were danger.
When he got home he learned his neighbors saved two of his dogs, but it wasn't smooth sailing yet, Lowcountry firefighters were also in the process of saving another of Rentz' dog, Razor.
Fire crews from Monks Corner Fire Department, Cross Fire Department, Pine Ridge Fire Department and Whitesville Rural Volunteer Fire Department were busy working several brush fires, when they came across the dogs.
One dog, Razor, was stuck inside of a pen and unresponsive when firefighters showed up.
They gave Razor CPR and put him on an oxygen mask.
"I made a bowl of water for [Razor] but he still wouldn't drink," Rentz said. "After being on the oxygen mask for nearly two hours, he started to come back to his regular self."
The owner says that his home was unharmed, but his shed was burnt and everything was destroyed.
Rentz says he is glad his dog is okay.
"[Razor] is fine now and acts like nothing ever happened, " Rentz said.
His main gratitude is towards the firefighters who helped save his home.
"Thanks to all the firemen that helped out. It really makes me feel good... If it wasn't for all of them I probably would have lost my house." Rentz said.
Officials with the SC Forestry Commission say crews dealt with at least 50 wildfires across the state.
