GRANITEVILLE, S.C. (WRDW) -- A home on Vaucluse Road near Good Springs Road has been destroyed in an early morning fire.

Graniteville fire officials tell News 12 the homeowner and her toddler were able to get out of the home without getting hurt, but the home is a total loss. Someone in the area saw the flames and reported the fire around 1:45 a.m.

Firefighters struggled to put out the flames because a power line fell on the home's fence, electrifying it. The power was turned off, allowing crews to reach the house.

The homeowner and her daughter are now staying with family. An investigation is underway to find out how the fire started.
