Grease Fire Blamed for Blaze That Left Six Families Without A Home

Posted: Updated:
ABBEVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

Investigators say the fire that left six families without a home started out as a grease fire, while something was cooking on the stove.

On Sunday afternoon the Abbeville City Fire and Rescue along with the American Red Cross responded to Hickory Heights Apartment Homes for a fire.  

Officials say that it was an 8 unit apartment building. Firefighters reported seeing flames coming from Apartment 107 when they arrived on scene. Fire spread into the overhang at the top of the landing and moved into the attic. Firefighters were able to stop the spread of the blaze and keep it contained to the apartment using 2,000 gallons of water.

However, the Abbeville Fire and Rescue Department says that no one can live in the building. The American Red Cross is assisting all of the families that lived in the 8 units.

No one was injured in the fire.
