FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Eighteen firefighters responded to a fire at an abandoned house in the Effingham community in Florence County Tuesday night, officials said.

Just before 7 p.m., the Howe Springs Fire Department was called out to investigate smoke in the area of Cummings Road, and while responding that that, they were called to a house fire in the 4800 block of Heyward Road, said Battalion Chief Collins. It was determined the house fire was the source of the smoke.

No one was in the abandoned home, and the cause of the fire is under investigation, Chief Collins said.
