Fire at South Carolina Golf Course Destroys 75 Carts

February 25, 2013

A fire in a cart shed at a Bluffton, S.C., golf course has destroyed as many as 75 carts, and authorities say it’s the second such blaze in Beaufort County since last November.

The Beaufort Gazette reports the fire ripped through the shed at Eagle’s Pointe Golf Course Friday around 7:30 p.m.

Although the fire was under control by 8:15, firefighters had to continue spraying the ruins with flame-retardant foam because of battery acid from the carts No injuries were reported.

General manager Brent Carlson declined to comment because he hadn’t spoken with authorities at Textron Financial Corp., which owns Eagle’s Pointe.

Authorities said a fire in a cart shed at Bear Creek Golf Club in Hilton Head Plantation on Nov. 26 was intentionally set and destroyed 52 golf carts.
