BRICK LEWIS — Columbia Fire Department

— A fire in an apartment at 846 Piney Grove Rd has injured no one but displaced four people, Columbia Fire Department spokesman Brick Lewis said.

When fire fighters from Columbia and Irmo arrived at the Dutch Haven Apartments, they found a heavy fire and thick smoke, Lewis said. A preliminary investigation by the Richland County Fire Marshal estimates damage around $75,000.
