SPARTANBURG (WSPA) – Several families are without a home after a fire early Tuesday morning at an apartment complex.

The fire started between two units at Valley Creek Apartments on Fairforest Road in Spartanburg. A Spartanburg Fire Department Assistant chief says the cause of the fire is undetermined.

Six fire departments responded to the fire on the second floor. Crews worked to keep the fire from spreading, but some third floor apartments suffered smoke damage.

The fire department says the building had no fire walls because it was built in 1972.

Firefighters said 25 people were impacted by the fire.

The American Red Cross says volunteers are helping seven adults and six children with financial assistance for food, clothing and lodging.

Crews with Westview-Fairforest, the City of Spartanburg, North Spartanburg, Una, Hilltop and Duncan Fire responded to the fire.
