ST. HELENA ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

The Lady's Island St. Helena Fire District responded to a residential fire in the Warsaw Island Road neighborhood Sunday night.

The fire started just after 11:30 p.m., but no one was inside the home at the time, and no injuries were reported.

Crews encountered heavy fire conditions from the single family dwelling, but got the flames under control about 30 minutes later.

Firefighters remained on scene for two hours after the fire was extinguished in attempt to salvage the family's belongings.

Warsaw Island Road was shut down due to the fire, but has since reopened.

There was no immediate estimate on the dollar amount of losses, and the fire's cause remains under investigation.

The Palmetto Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family who was displaced because of the fire.
