2-Alarm Fire Damages 3 Homes in Richland County

On Friday May 28, 2021 CRFD crews responded to a 2-Alarm fire that ripped through a home on Durham Creek Court, leaving it heavily damaged.

Firefighters responded to the scene shortly after 11 a.m. Friday. The first units arrived to find heavy fire spreading quickly throughout the home and threatening residences that were adjacent to it. This prompted officers on scene to call for a 2nd Alarm, which sent more resources to the scene.

By the time crews got the fire under control the house where the fire started was a total loss and the homes to each side of it were significantly damaged. Seven people were left displaced but thankfully no one was injured by the fire.

The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Richland County Fire Marshal’s Office.
