NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The North Charleston Fire Department is investigating after a fire broke out at a vacant building on Scott Street Thursday night.

Deputy Chief Stephanie Julazadeh said a 911 caller reported a massive fire that could be seen from his home just before 10:30 p.m. and said it appeared to be an old building on fire.

Fire crews from the North Charleston Fire Department and St. Andrews Fire Department responded to the call along with the Charleston County Rescue Squad.

Julazadeh said crews reported seeing a heavy fire at a large vacant commercial building when they arrived.

Crews were not able to go inside the building to fight the fire because of conditions inside, but used ladder trucks and hose lines to help get the fire under control.

No injuries were reported.
