(Allendale, SC) – A terrible shock to a member of the Allendale Rescue Squad when he realized the fully-engulfed home firefighters were responding to – is his mothers.
The home was one of four residences that were destroyed in less than 20 hours in Aiken and Allendale counties.
The blaze was reported about 5:20 a.m. ET on Sat., Dec. 2, 2017 in the city of Allendale, SC.
“Its gonna be my mother’s residence,” said one rescue official on the scene as he witnessed flames wrapped around the brick frame home and fire shooting out the windows.
Meanwhile about 2:25 a.m. today (Sat., Dec. 2, 2017), a neighbor called Aiken 911 to report a home had already burned to the ground- as both are located in a relatively remote area.
Numerous firefighters rushed to the scene of a home that – in fact – was completely destroyed before anyone knew it was burning.
