2 firefighters hurt battling house fire in Greenville Co.


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – A Greenville County home was severely damaged and two firefighters suffered minor burns in a fire on Thursday.

Firefighters say the home on Brownstone Circle is uninhabitable. Two surrounding homes also had minor damage.

According to the Wade Hampton Fire Department, two firefighters were burned when part of a roof collapsed on them but they are okay.

Wade Hampton and Greenville City Fire Departments responded to the fire.

Investigators say they have not yet determined a cause as of Thursday evening, but an outdoor grill on the back patio may have caused the fire.

The Red Cross says volunteers are assisting the three families whose homes were damaged in the fire by providing financial assistance for food, clothing and other essentials.
