COLUMBIA, SC — The cause of an early morning fire at the Four Season apartment complex on Schoolhouse Road was electrical in nature, in or around the vicinity of a dryer, according to Columbia Fire Department Spokesman Brick Lewis.
The Columbia Fire Department responded around 7:20 a.m. where heavy smoke and fire were visible as first units arrived.
Lewis said the fire was under control around 8 a.m., but about eight apartments in building B sustained damage. Only a couple of apartments had severe fire damage, but officials had to cut the power to the building.
Lewis said one person was transported by Richland County EMS to an area hospital, and about 30 occupants were displaced by the fire.
He said damages are estimated at $115,000.
