1 min read

The Burton Fire District, MCAS Beaufort Fire Department, and Beaufort County EMS, responded Friday, June 26 to a blazing gazebo fire threatening a local home.

Just before 3 p.m. Friday, Burton and MCAS Beaufort firefighters responded to a reported house fire on Laurel Street E. Firefighters arrived on scene not to find a house on fire, but a gazebo in the rear of the home fully ablaze and threatening the home.

Placing themselves between the home and the fire, firefighters quickly pushed back and knocked down the flames. The fire was quickly extinguished. No injuries were reported and the home was not damaged. 

Homeowners were not home at the time. The fire is under investigation.

This fire came on the heels of a house fire earlier in the morning for Burton fire crews that displaced a family of five.
