MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) — A Mount Pleasant home has been ruled a total loss after a brush fire Sunday evening.

Mt. Pleasant Fire Chief Mike Mixon tells News 2, calls came in around 8:45 p.m. of a brush fire in the woods around a home on Forsythe Lane.

Chief Mixon says the fire eventually spread to the home, covering it in flames. The roof of the home was gone by the time crews arrived on the scene.

According to neighbors, the home was vacant and they do not believe anyone was living there at the time of the fire.
