On the night of Saturday August 28, 2021 CRFD firefighters responded to a massive apartment building fire at Grove at St. Andrews Apartments off of Zimalcrest Drive.
By the time the first crews arrived on scene flames could be seen coming through a section of the building’s roof. There were also reports that tenants were still inside the building. This prompted responders on scene to call for a 2nd Alarm.
In all roughly 50 members of the department became involved in the operation. The fire was ultimately contained and put out and no one was injured.
At least 14 residents of the apartment complex were left displaced. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Richland County Fire Marshal’s Office.
