South Carolina Mobile Home Erupts in Flames

On March 2, 2004, South Lynches Fire Department in Lake City, South Carolina responded to a reported working mobile home fire.

First arriving units reported a fully involved mobile home fire. Engine 312 was first on the scene and quickly knocked the bulk of the fire down using an Akron Mercury Portable Monitor and one 1 3/4 handline.

The residents were home at the time of the fire and were able to escape the structure.
