An early morning fire gutted an abandoned Rock Hill home, officials said.
Around 8:45, the Rock Hill Fire Department responded to a fire at 833 Orr Drive. Battalion Chief Steve Rogers said the department encountered heavy fire conditions.
“We had fire coming out of all the windows,” Rogers said about the 900-square foot home. “It also appeared to be coming out of a vent at the top (of the house).”
No one was in the house at the time of the fire, Rogers said.
Never miss a local story.
The fire was contained within five to 10 minutes, Rogers said.
Officials have not determined where or how the fire started.
It was the second day in a row that an empty house burned in Rock Hill. On Monday, a house on Carolina Avenue Extension was hit by a fire.
