Hardeeville, SC -

Hardeeville Fire Officials say flames broke out early Friday morning at an apartment complex just off of Highway 17.

Hardeeville Police Chief Dan Morgan said they were able to contain the fire to two apartment units within a half hour of arriving to the call at 4:00am.

"The first arriving crews reported heavy smoke and flames coming from the first unit of the apartment complex," Chief Morgan says. "They initiated fire attack and got the fire under control in about 20 minutes."

A man inside the first unit was sent to Savannah Memorial Hospital for smoke inhalation, but officials say it's not life threatening.

Units one and two are a total loss, while the third unit has just minor damage from smoke, says Morgan.

"The fire was contained to the first unit. There was some damage to a second unit that was completely unoccupied. The residents of the third unit had to be moved to a vacant apartment in the complex. There was no damage to their unit other than smoke," Morgan says. 

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
