Fire destroys mobile home on Buck Island Rd.

    A fire destroyed a home on Buck Island Road late Friday afternoon, according to Capt. Randy Hunter of the Bluffton Township Fire District.

Battling heavy flames and smoke, an engine company extinguished the fire at a single-wide mobile home at 216 Buck Island Road in less than 15 minutes after responding shortly after 8 p.m. The home's occupants got out safely, and traffic along Buck Island Road was not shut down, Hunter said.

The home is "a total loss," Hunter said. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
