3 mobile homes destroyed in fire

BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) - Three to five acres are burning on Bear Swamp Road in the Dale Community in northern Beaufort County.

Someone in the neighborhood was burning trash outdoors and thought it was out, but it wasn't, according to authorities. Dry conditions and high winds caused it to spread.

Three mobile homes destroyed -- two of them were being remodeled. The fire is now burning behind several homes on Bear Swamp Road.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission is there along with the Sheldon Fire Dept. and the Burton Fire Dept. The SC Forestry Commission, Sheldon and Burton are also working a fire on Haynes Road in lobeco. No homes are damaged, but one auto burned.
