A single-story Burton home was destroyed by fire early Friday, according to the first responders.
Firefighters called to the Landon Lane home at about 3:30 a.m. found the front door open and flames shooting through the roof, a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report said. The Burton Fire District had the flames under control in about 15 minutes and extinguished the fire in about two hours, spokesman Dan Byrne said.
No injuries were reported.
Another Landon Lane resident called 911 after he smelled smoke and noticed the home on fire, the Sheriff's Office report said. The homeowner told deputies she rented the property to a man who used it for storage and had not lived there for several years.
Never miss a local story.
No power was connected to the home, according to the report.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, Byrne said.
