The North River Volunteer Fire Department in Beaufort caught fire just before 6 a.m. on Sunday.
On Monday, the smell of charred wood lingered in the air outside the station. The assistant fire chief said they lost three fire trucks, plus a fire brush pickup truck and all their equipment — including the hoses, the air tanks they use to breath, and chainsaws.
In the meantime, the Beaufort Fire Department will be covering the district until a more permanent solution is found.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but the assistant fire chief said it looks as though it may have been an electric fire.
