UPDATE: Andrew Knapp from the Post and Courier wrote another good story. It starts, “Yell “fire” here, and people don’t run away. They jump into their golf carts, then into action.”
- Live 5’s Mark Davenport had a very nice story about the aftermath of the fire on Dewees Island.
- Excellent story and video by Natalie Caula from ABC News4 about the fire on Dewees Island last night.
- Post and Courier published a great follow up article about the fire on Dewees Island last night.
- Here’s a story from CountOn2 regarding Dewees. They emphasize that you have to use a ferry to get to Dewees…but don’t seem to understand that downtown Charleston is less than 40 minutes; Isle of Palms and Mount Pleasant are much closer. I wish they’d had time to see our beautiful wide-open beaches and experience the amazing fishing. They might have understood more why so many special people choose to live and vacation on Dewees.
Special thanks to all the news crews and islanders who got the word out that no one was hurt, the fire was contained to 2 buildings, and the community pulled together to do what needed to be done.

Thanks so much for keeping us informed as we feel so far away in England. We are so grateful to all. Who helped to save our island. Our hearts are heavy and we are anxious to be back in our home on Dewees next week.
Marion, the scene at the two houses is tough. But the rest of the island continues with unabated natural beauty. Your house is the same sanctuary you left behind. We look forward to seeing you when you come home.
