Fire Damaged Home in Pine Ridge

As you are aware, 3 Bristlestone Court suffered a fire in March 2017.

The house remains in a derelict state since the fire damage. The Town of Bluffton has indicated they are not inclined to demolish this property due to the pending criminal charges against the owner. In addition, the owner has not repaired the building and this inaction has left us, the residents and owners of Pine Ridge with a health and safety hazard that we are unable to remedy.

The Town of Bluffton may change their position if they hear from us, the homeowners of Pine Ridge POA regarding the impact this house has had over the last two years.

We urge you reach out to Marc Orlando, Bluffton Town Manager, by email at, or by telephone at 843-706-4505, to express your concerns over this longstanding threat to the community.

Also, we encourage each of you to reach out to Caitlin Turner at the Island Packet to discuss your concerns and the impact of this property. She can be reached by email at, or by phone at 843-706-8184.
