A mobile home at 745 Smith Pond Road in Lexington County’s Round Hill community was destroyed by fire Saturday afternoon.
Authorities said the blaze is under investigation but that they think it started near a wooden porch behind the home. The source might have been smoking materials.
Firefighters with the county’s fire service spent about an hour fighting the blaze. The loss was estimated at $26,000. The owners’ two sons were home during the fire but neither was injured, according to a news release from the Lexington County Fire Service.
