A Port Royal home was damaged in a fire Saturday evening, a Beaufort Fire Department official said.
The department arrived at the1904 Lenora Drive residence about 5 p.m. to find flames had spread from a chimney into the crawlspace of the two-story home, Capt. Larry DeLoach said.
A homeowner and a cat were home at the time, but escaped uninjured, he said.
About 20 percent of the house was damaged, though an estimate of the cost was not available late Saturday.
