A Nov. 6 fire at a Lake View Dr., Summerville, home is considered suspicious and under investigation by the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office.
Responding to a report of a residence on fire, deputies found the back of the residence and roof to be on fire. Dorchester County Fire responded as well.
In a matter of one to two minutes, deputies said, the entire residence was burning.
Another deputy, off duty, also responded and said he was the “key holder” as the owner was away.
He told officials that while en route to the location he passed an older sports utility vehicle driving at a high rate of speed from the direction of the residence.
DCSO Crime Scene units are investigating.
