A man was displaced this morning after a fire gutted his mobile home in Moncks Corner.

The Whitesville Fire Department responded to the blaze around 5:45 a.m. at 181 Garnett Drive, which is just south of the Berkeley County Airport.

According Nancy Olson, communications manager for the local chapter of the American Red Cross, volunteers assisted one person whose home was destroyed in the fire.

Olson said local Red Cross volunteers have helped 17 victims of home fires so far this year.
