MULLINS, S.C. (WBTW) — One person was killed and another was sent to a burn unit in Charleston after a mobile home fire overnight in Mullins.
A firefighter was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries suffered while fighting the fire, authorities said.
Crews were sent to the fire about 10:45 p.m. Monday where a double-wide mobile home was deemed a “total loss,” according to Mulline Fire Capt. Lee.
According to a Facebook post by the Marion Rural Fire Department, two firefighters were trapped and surrounded by flames inside the home after falling through a floor.
“A Mayday was called and the hose line was used to help keep the crews from suffering serious burns,” the department said. ” Answering the mayday several personnel entered and successfully pulled the two members out.”
One was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and the other was not hurt, the department said.
“What saved these two were the proper wearing of ALL PPE and the quick reaction of those coming to their rescue,” the department said.
