GREENVILLE CO., S.C. (WSPA) – At least 14 families were forced out of their homes after a fire tore through an apartment complex on the first day of the New Year.

Wade Hampton Fire Department, Boiling Springs Fire Department, and Pelham-Batesville fire departments responded to the fire just after 2 p.m. Sunday to the Crestmont at Thornblade apartment complex on Crestmont Way.
