Fire officials will dig to the base of a collapsed three-story house on Lake Murray today, hoping to find out what started a Saturday fire.
The fire — which destroyed the $2.7 million home on Lake Front Court in Lexington County — began in the garage, Irmo Chief Mike Sonefeld said. No one was injured.
“It’s a complete loss, down to the ground,” he said. “The home was pushing almost 8,000 square feet. It’s a huge, huge home.” It was valued at $1.9 million and the contents at $800,000.
