The cause of the fire and amount of damage to the facility is still under investigation, said Simmons. Fire crews cut holes in the side of the building to access the fire and ensure the flames were fully extinguished.

Crews that responded to the fire included, Palmetto Fire Rescue, Florence Fire Department, West Florence Fire Department, Darlington Fire Department, and the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office.

Simmons says because of the size and age of the building, the fire was an immediate concern, so many crews were brought in to ward off what could have been a very dangerous situation. No injuries were reported.
