A fire severely damaged a house off Savannah Highway this morning.
The blaze at 613 Hughes Road got up under the roof and sent smoke damage throughout the house, St. Andrews Fire Department Chief Patrick Henry said.
The firefighters got the call at 9:04 a.m., and the first truck was on the scene at 9:07 a.m., he said.
The station is near Savannah Highway on Bees Ferry Road. Hughes Road is across the highway.
The City of Charleston, Johns Island and North Charleston fire departments also sent units to the fire, Henry said.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation, but foul play is not suspected, he said.
The fire displaced two adults who lived there. The Red Cross set them up in a nearby motel and gave them money to replace food and clothing that was lost in the fire, according to an email from the agency.
To help fire victims, the Red Cross relies on donations which can be made at lowcountryredcross.org.
