Two Burton-area residential fires were reported within hours of each other over the weekend.
The first fire on Detour Road in Seabrook consumed a garage around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, according to a Burton Fire District news release. No injuries were reported.
The fire destroyed the large, two-bay garage/workshop that was 50 feet behind a home, according to the release. Flames also damaged two vehicles and a shed.
Despite “water supply issues due to the lack of fire hydrants in that area of Seabrook,” firefighters were able to extinguish the fire quickly with assistance from Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department and Sheldon Fire District, according to the release.
The Beaufort County Fire Scene Investigation team is investigating the fire, Burton Fire District spokesman Dan Byrne said Sunday morning.
The second fire occurred shortly after 6:30 a.m. Sunday on Joe Frazier Road, according to the release. No injuries were reported.
A fire started beneath a mobile home that was being remodeled, and flames crawled up the siding, according to the release. The fire was stopped before it could spread into the home, which was vacant at the time of the fire.
Burton Fire District is investigating the fire, but it is believed to be unintentional, according to the release.
