Man dies after flat fire in Chester on Christmas Eve

Posted December 26, 2017

A Dorchester County family is now without a home this Christmas after it was destroyed in a two alarm fire in Hurlock, Christmas morning.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the building and brought out a man who was found in the flat. Upon entry, fire crews discovered the origin of the fire was in the knee wall area on the second floor and they were able to quickly extinguish the fire. At about 8:45 a.m., firefighters extinguished a suspicious residential fire in the 1700 block of Dale Avenue. They have opened a shelter at the First Baptist Church on East Main Street in Spartanburg for those residents. Damage is estimated at $30,000. "We ran into three frozen hydrants due to the weather", said Chicago Fire District Chief of Special Operations Tim Walsh. The homeowner called 911 to report a fire in her kitchen. Frozen fire hydrants also hurt their efforts to put out the massive blaze.
