The Newberry County Sheriff's Office said a working house fire on Monday afternoon caused the shutdown of a highway.

The fire is located along Highway 34 between Mount Pleasant Road and Keitts Crossroads. The area is currently closed. Deputies said traffic is being re-routed from Mount Pleasant Road to Mount Bethel Garmany Road.

Firefighters said one person was inside the home but got out safely. Seven different fire departments were called to assist at the scene. Due to the rural area, additional water was needed.

The Newberry County Fire Chief said the home suffered damage to the back and outside garage.
