South Carolina suffered a rash of wildfires across the state last weekend, three of which occurred in Lancaster County.
In all, South Carolina firefighters and Forestry Commission personnel battled 131 wildfires over the weekend.
Officials attributed the state’s dangerous fire conditions to a combination of low humidity, warm temperatures and wind gusts of up to 30 mph, conditions that prompted the Forestry Commission to issue a Red Flag Fire Alert.
