PICS: Elderly Woman Without Home After Large Union Co. Fire

Posted: Updated:
UNION COUNTY, S.C. - A Union County house is a total loss and a 91-year-old woman is without a home after a large fire on Cross Keys Highway.

Several fire departments were called to fight the fire at the two story home at 3561 Cross Keys Highway late Tuesday afternoon.

The flames ripped through the home and spread to the woods because of high winds.  Narrow roads and rough terrain also caused problems for fire crews getting to the scene.

Sheriff David Taylor said a 91-year-old woman lived at the home.  She was able to make it out without any injuries.

Our crews returned to the scene Wednesday morning to find some areas still smoldering and flaming.  After a call to officials, firefighters were send back out to the property.  They say when they left Tuesday night at 10:30, the fire appeared to be out.

Investigators tell us the fire started in the chimney.
