Fire crews remained on the scene for about two hours to assist fire investigators and ensure that there were no hidden areas of fire. The cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation by Columbia fire marshals.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported during this incident. However, the Columbia Fire Department would like to remind residents that smoke alarms save lives. It is crucial to have smoke alarms installed on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas. Monthly checks should be done by pressing the test button, and batteries should be changed at least twice a year when adjusting clocks for Daylight Saving Time. Smoke alarms over 10 years old should be replaced.

The Columbia Fire Department urges residents to take necessary precautions to prevent fires and keep their homes safe.
