Update, early morning: The Island Packet has a quick report that notes no one was found at the house, but no word on cause yet.
The brief has a few more details; read it here.
Update, evening: The fire was under control in just an hour or so, though it all looked pretty grim.
We'll look for official word on what occurred in the a.m.
First reporting, 5 p.m.: Port Royal and Burton authorities are working a pretty involved house fire on Broad River Drive in Shell Point.
Not much else to report now, but from what you can see, this fire is pretty bad.
