A Yemassee home was destroyed in a fire on Tuesday, according to the Yemassee Fire Department.
The department responded to the home on Green Street at about 2 p.m., Chief Paul Holmes said.
The fire took about two hours to extinguish, Holmes said.
The cause of the fire has not been determined, and the department is investigating, Holmes said.
No one was injured in the fire, but a dog that had hidden behind a couch in the home died, Holmes said.
The American Red Cross assisted the displaced family of four adults, providing temporary house, food, clothing, personal hygiene items and referrals to assist the family with their long term recovery, according to a Red Cross news release.
