Charleston County News

AWENDAW, S.C. (WCBD) – Be careful burning or avoid it altogether if you can — that’s the message from Awendaw-McClellanville Fire.

Crews responded to five brush fires along Sewee Road in Awendaw just before 8:00 a.m. Thursday morning.

The fires were quickly extinguished.

A spokesperson said they believe a vehicle dragging loose chains down the road sparked the brush fires.

Fire crews are now urging others to double check any chains when towing boats and trailers.

With the dry conditions, it does not take much to start a fire.
