November 10, 2014 – At approximately 1:30pm the Bluffton Township Fire District and Beaufort County EMS were dispatched to 25 Ferebee Court for a reported Structure Fire. First units on scene reported a working fire in a single family dwelling. Engine 320’s crew attempted an aggressive attack into the 2nd Division. They encountered high heat and zero visibility as they tried to find the seat of the fire. The crew from Truck 375 were assigned to open the roof up with the hopes to elevate some of the conditions on the 2nd Division. The heat continued to build and the visibility remained the same so command pulled all companies out of the building and prepared for a defensive attack. Once exterior operations were started and an elevated master stream was used the fire was slowly brought under control. Crews remained on scene for approximately 4 hours overhauling and extinguishing hot spots. The Bluffton Twp Fire Dist Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire. No injuries were reported.
Units on scene – Engine 320, 323, 326, 325, Truck 375, Service 365, Battalion 5, 301, 303
