GREENVILLE, S.C. - A fire severely damaged a home in the city of Greenville Friday night.

The fire happened just after 7 p.m. at a home on Croft Street. According to Greenville Fire Inspector L.C. Dendy, when firefighters arrived the fire was coming from the second floor of the home. 

Twenty-six firefighters and six fire engines were utilized to battle the fire, which left extensive damage to the second floor. Nobody was at home at the time of the fire, but Dendy said one person returned to the house during the fire and had to be transported to the hospital due to anxiety from seeing the damage to the home. One firefighter suffered minor injuries from slipping on ice, but did not have to be transported to the hospital. 

Dendy stated that the the fire was caused by a kerosene heater that was close to combustible material in the home. It has been ruled unintentional.
