GAFFNEY, S.C. (WSPA) – A UPS driver was delivering a package Wednesday when he realized a house was on fire, according to Gaffney City Fire Marshall Billy Bishop.
The driver was delivering to a home on River Drive at around 2:30 p.m. when he smelled something burning, according to Bishop.
The driver walked around to the back of the house and that’s when he saw the fire.
Bishop said that the home was at the end of a cul de sac, and the family was not home during the time of the fire.
There were 4 pets inside the home, and only 3 made it out safely.
Firefighters say the fire started on a counter top in the kitchen, and was possibly sparked by an electrical issue with an appliance.
The home is a total loss due to heat, smoke, and water damage, according to Bishop.
Gaffney City Fire Department and Blacksburg Fire Department responded.
