K9 Blue died after suffering serious burns as the result of a fire at the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office kennel located at 430 North Fraser Street.

Responding fire personnel were able to extinguish the fire and rescue several other tracking bloodhounds. Blue suffered serious burns and was taken to an emergency animal hospital where he was euthanized two days later.

The kennel was being renovated at the time and it is believed that an electrical fire started after one of the canines chewed through wire.

Blue was a Bluetick Coonhound mix and had served with the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office for seven months.
