Greenwood Co. Fire Kills One

Greenwood County authorities say James H. Etheredge Sr., 72 was killed in a fire. It happened Tuesday afternoon.

Firefighters were called out after someone saw heavy smoke coming from a home at 1024 Brickyard Road in Ninety Six.

Five Greenwood county fire departments and one from Saluda County worked to put the fire out.

Investigators say Etheredge was trapped inside a bedroom in the home.

They searched the home, but had to leave because of heat and possible collapses.

They are still investigating the cause of that fire.
