Charleston Consolidated Dispatch has confirmed that crews have cleared a reported structure fire at 1219 Savannah Highway in West Ashley. The Glass Onion restaurant is located at that address and Swig and Swine is located next door at 1217 Savannah Highway.
The fire was originally reported at 1219 Savannah Highway but it turns out the smoke was coming from the smokers which run all night at Swig and Swine.
Anthony DiBernardo, owner and “smokeman” at Swig and Swine tells News 2 “this will make it the 5th time someone has driven by and called in a fire.”
The call came in at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning and just after 6:45 a.m., dispatch confirmed that the scene had been cleared.
Charleston City Fire Department was the responding agency.
