The fire broke out around 2pm yesterday (Thursday) on Merriweather Drive in Graniteville. One person was at the house at the time, but no one was injured. The woman who lived there is a mother of 5, who is struggling after they have lost everything. She said on Facebook: "This will be a long journey getting us back where we need to be. We literally only have the clothes on our backs and nothing else."
