Hurricane Matthew leaves one family without a house

ALLENDALE COUNTY, SC (WFXG) -

For some families, the damage from Hurricane Matthew didn't show up right away.

One family's home in Allendale County is left in ruin after it caught fire Sunday night. The Allendale EMA director confirms the fire is connected to damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.

One resident, Shaquille Creech, says Sunday is a night he won't ever forget. "We were sitting in the car and someone said the house was on fire and like y'all see the walls got burned down. We had to get a water hose. The fire truck and the ambulance came but at the end of the day they tried to save as much as they can."

No one was hurt in the fire.
