FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Firefighters are investigating what started a fire at an abandoned home in downtown Florence.

Fire Marshal Chris Johnson said that crews responded Tuesday afternoon to the scene on South Dargan and East Pine streets.

WMBF News could see huge clouds of black smoke from our Skycam Network in Florence at one point.

A viewer also sent in pictures that show a home engulfed in smoke.

Several hose lines were deployed which allowed firefighters to control the fire in 45 minutes and protect the structure next to it. Firefighters remained on the scene for another hour to extinguish hot spots.

No one was hurt in the fire.
