Burton Fire still investigating cause of house fire

Posted: Updated:

Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire that destroyed a mobile home in Burton in Beaufort County. The fire broke out early Friday afternoon on Bon Air Circle.

The call came in a little after noon at 132 Bon Air Circle. The couple who lived in the home wasn't home, but their seven pets were and did not survive.

Fire crews responded to the scene within minutes of the call. They shut down Bon Air Circle from the home all the way up to the Parris Island Gateway Intersection.

The fire was put out quickly, but firefighters weren't able to save either the home or the animals inside.

According to Burton Fire, the couple had four cats, one pit bull and two ferrets. They all died from smoke inhalation.
