Part of The Coastal Bank reopens after fire

Posted: Updated:

Part of The Coastal Bank has reopened in Rincon after lightning sparked a fire Monday. 

Lightning struck the bank's roof and started a fire in the ceiling. At about 5 p.m. Monday, employees began to smell smoke inside the bank.

Crews extinguished smoldering insulation. Tarps inside the bank's lobby covered some tables to protect from water damage. No one was injured.

As of Tuesday, the ATM and drive-through are staffed and open.

However, the interior part of the bank is still closed to customers to allow for a quicker clean up of the inside.

There is no timetable yet for when the branch will fully reopen.
