The Columbia Fire Department is investigating a morning fire that damaged a home in Lower Richland.
No one was home when the blaze started around 9 a.m. at a single story house on Dry Branch Road, which is off of Bluff Road, said Interim Columbia Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins. The fire caused about $20,000 in damages, and an investigator is on scene to determine the cause, Jenkins said.
No firefighters were injured, he said. - Noelle Phillips
