WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCBD) – The St. Andrews Fire Department is responding to a reported house fire in West Ashley.

Officials report that at 2:33 a.m. firefighters from St. Andrews and the City of Charleston were dispatched to a structure fire on Lamb St. in West Ashley.

Firefighters arrived and found a working fire inside a one-story, single-family home with three residents and a pet dog home at the time of the fire, but all were able to escape with no injuries, said officials with the St. Andrews Fire Department.

Fire crews began fire attack, but a false roof above the original roof of the home made it difficult to gain access to the bulk of the fire.

Crews brought the fire under control in approximately an hour, officials said.

No injuries were reported. The fire remains under investigation.

The American Red Cross is assisting the family with financial assistance and immediate needs like food, clothing, shelter and resource referrals.
