LFD discovers alligator after fighting fire
LFD 3
Members of the Lugoff Fire Department (LFD) made a startling discovery while checking possible damage from an apartment fire June 18: a young American alligator. According to LFD Chief Dennis Ray, firefighters weren’t even in the damaged unit at Lugoff’s Lynwood apartment complex off Frenwood Lane when they found the alligator. Ray said crews quickly put out what turned out to be a kitchen fire -- within six minutes -- and then went to the apartment above that one to see if the fire had spread.
