From staff reports

Just past 10 p.m., Friday, Aug. 20, Burton and MCAS firefighters, along with Beaufort County EMS, responded to a reported house fire on Milledge Village Road in Burton.

Two adults were transported to the hospital, and a kitten was rescued and revived by Burton firefighters.

Fire crews arrived on scene and discovered smoke and flames coming from a single wide mobile home.

Beaufort County Sheriff’s deputies, who were first to arrive, had assisted a male occupant’s escape from a window.

Firefighters quickly brought the fire under control, and during a search of the residence, fire crews located and removed a kitten. The kitten was breathing, but unconscious and not responding.

Burton firefighters applied oxygen to the feline who, after several minutes, was able to regain consciousness and begin to move. The kitten was transported by Beaufort County Animal Control to a local veterinarian.

Two adults were treated and transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital by Beaufort County EMS.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Beaufort County Sherrif’s Office and Burton fire investigators.
