NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Merriweather Fire Department responded Monday night to a fully involved residential structure fire off Ridge Road.

The residents living in the home were a father and daughter.

They both were able to escape the fire safely, but their dogs are stuck inside the home.

The chief of the Merriweather Fire Department said officials are not sure what originally started the fire, but the reason the flames keep dying down and reigniting is because the home is made out of plywood.

There are no injuries reported at this time. We have a News 12 crew on the way to the scene that will provide updates.
