A construction trailer in Woodstock’s Oakhurst subdivision was extensively damaged in a fire Thursday just after 9 a.m., but nobody was injured, officials said.

Woodstock Fire Chief Dave Soumas said firefighters were able to get to the fire, which happened in the midst of this week’s winter storm, despite ice and snow on the ground.

“The roads were passable but we had Woodstock Public Works respond with us to help get us out,” Soumas said Friday.

The Woodstock Fire Department, Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and the Woodstock Public Works Department responded to the structure fire on Grand Oaks Drive, said Woodstock Police and Fire spokeswoman Brittany Duncan in a news release.

“Upon arrival, firefighters were confronted with a large amount of smoke coming from the interior of the structure. As a result, an aggressive attack on the interior of the building ensued where they were successfully able to contain the fire and quickly extinguish it,” Duncan said.

Nobody was in the trailer when the fire started so nobody was injured, and the cause of the fire is under investigation, Duncan said.

“At this time, it appears to be accidental and non-weather related,” Duncan said.

Soumas said, while the cause of the fire is still under investigation, it appears the fire started near the HVAC system.

The trailer was extensively damaged, Duncan said, but no surrounding structures were damaged.
