Structure Fire Townes at Buckwalter

June 28 2016 – At approximately 11:00pm, the Bluffton Township Fire District along with Beaufort County EMS, were dispatched to a reported structure fire on Farnsleigh Ave in the Hampton Hall Subdivision. The first units on scene reported a working fire in the upper floor and possibly the attic. Crews advanced in to the fire but deteriorating condition force an evacuation of the structure. Crews then attacked the fire from the exterior of the structure. Once the fire was extinguished from the outside, crews were then able to make their way back inside the residence to continue to extinguish the fire. Due to the heavy fire load, it took crews approximately an hour to bring the fire under control. The extent of damage is very extensive so crew worked for an additional 2 hours cooling hot spots. The residents were out of town at the time of the fire. The were no reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Bluffton Township Fire District Fire Marshal’s Office.
