Fire rips through pallets at business in Spartanburg Co.


SPARTANBURG CO., SC (WSPA) – Firefighters battled a large blaze involving thousands of pallets at a business on Freys Drive in Spartanburg County.

Firefighters have contained the fire and will monitor it overnight to make sure it doesn’t restart.

According to Doug Bryson with Spartanburg Emergency Management, there were between 8 and 10 fire departments on the scene.

EMS was monitoring the firefighters’ vital signs as they rotate on working the fire.

Bryson says the big task is to keep the fire contained and keep it from spreading to the woods nearby.

Video from Air 7 showed at least one building burned along with the pallets at a business just north of Reidville Road west of Spartanburg.

Firefighters were using a bulldozer to stop the fire from spreading.

The fire started at about 3:00pm on Wednesday.
