CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston Fire Department says they extinguished a house fire that was spreading to an adjacent structure.

Firefighters say the home was reportedly vacant and they worked to quickly gain control of fire while simultaneously extinguishing the fire that was spreading to the adjacent structure.

The situation was brought under control in less than 20 minutes, officials say.

Members of the Fire Marshal Division say they have responded to investigate the incident.
