Fire rages at South Carolina dental practice

Litchfield, S.C-based Total Care Dentistry caught fire June 29 in the late afternoon, according to South Strand News.

A local fire station received a call that an alarm had been activated at the dental office owned by Gregory Hierholzer, DMD. Upon arrival, firefighters quickly recognized smoke clouding up at the back of the building and discovered what they told South Strand News was a "heavy body of fire."

No dental staff were hurt in the fire, as they had all been sent home for the day when it erupted.
