A man was burning storm debris when the fire got out of control and spread to his home on Ebenezer Road in Darlington County Thursday and destroyed it, according to Palmetto a Rural Fire Chief Tommy Spivey.

Spivey says by the time firefighters got to the scene flames covered the roof of the house.

He adds there was little they could do to save it.

SC Forestry Commission is investigating if the homeowner will be cited in the incident.

Darlington City, Darlington County and West Florence Fire Departments helped battle the fire.
