GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – A fire took over at a rehabilitation center on Old Easley Bridge Road Sunday morning.
Fire crews worked to battle the flames at Holmesview Vocational Rehab Center.
Parker Fire District was the lead unit handling the blaze, with multiple units assisting.
About 30 people were displaced and American Red Cross is assisting them.
