Firefighters responded to a fire Thursday afternoon at Palmetto Inn motel on Highway 76 at I-95 in Florence.

Firefighters removed some furniture from a motel room and put it in the parking lot as they fought the fire.

Crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to other rooms.

West Florence Fire District Fire Marshal Dwight Mobley said the fire started from an electrical problem.

Mobley said the people staying in the room where the fire started weren’t there at the time.

He added the American Red Cross is helping the family.

We’ve called the fire district’s public information officer to learn more about the fire and we'll bring you updates as they come in.
