(WCSC) - Bee City Honeybee Farm and Zoo is open again after an Easter fire came within feet of the business’ zoo area.

None of the animals were hurt, but the zoo located in Colleton County is just half of the business.

They sell thousands of pounds of honey to retailers all over the place and that half of the business was completely destroyed.

Colleton County Fire Rescue was able to get the fire out in about 20 minutes, but the building had completely filled with smoke rendering about 1600 gallons of honey unusable as well as all of their plastic bottles.

“If that would have happened, it would have gone right up next to our primates and stretched out.

We were probably 15 feet away from the Siberian Tiger exhibits which are rescues we brought in, helping the endangered species out and keeping them going. ” Biering says he does have more at another location and will work with other honey producers to get all of the orders that were destroyed refilled.
