An early morning fire ripped through a home in Awendaw Friday.

It appears to be under control, but crews are still on scene managing hot spots.

According to emergency dispatchers in Charleston County, the fire broke out about 2:30 a.m. Friday at a home off U.S. Highway 17, just north of Awendaw.

When the engine arrived, fire crews say flames were coming through the roof. The home appears to be a total loss.

Two people were inside, but escaped. No one was injured in the blaze.

Crews from Mount Pleasant, Charleston County, Isle of Palms and Awendaw responded.

The home is still smoking and one land is blocked on HWY 17 as they work to clean up the scene.
