Dennis Wheeler Obituary, Death- Jennifer J. Van Cleave, who works as the public information officer for the City of Orangeburg, stated that a person was sadly killed as a consequence of a house fire that took place on Tuesday in Orangeburg. This information was provided by Jennifer J. Van Cleave. The event took occurred in Orangeburg.
Dennis Wheeler, who was 77 years old at the time of the event, was judged to be the man who passed away as a consequence of the fire, as stated by remarks made by Sean D. Fogle, who is the Chief Deputy Coroner of Orangeburg County. After conducting an investigation, it was determined that Wheeler was the person responsible for the crime. At 1:35 in the afternoon, the Fire Department of the Department of Public Safety was sent the Residential Structure Incident Complaint Form that had been submitted earlier. The claim that was stated in the complaint gave the impression that the interaction may have constituted entrapment in some way.
When the firemen from Mason Drive arrived, they discovered a home that had sustained significant fire damage in a room that faced west, in addition to having glass that had been broken. The number of levels of living area in the residence varied ranging from one to one and a half levels. The combination of the high temperatures outside and the strong winds that were blowing from the west at a speed of 16 miles per hour contributed to the rapid spread of the fire that was occurring inside the house.
The winds were blowing from the south-by-southwest direction. As a result of the roof caving in and allowing rain inside the property, the home was flooded. At this point in time, it is thought that an accident was the reason why the fire broke out in the building in the first place.
It was a little over two hours before the blaze could eventually be brought under control.
