SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A fire destroyed a home along New Cut Road in Spartanburg County Tuesday afternoon.
The fire broke out at a large home on New Cut Road near Motlow Creek Road around 6 p.m.
Firefighters said the home’s distance to fire hydrants and the wind complicated efforts to extinguish the fire.
There’s no word yet on what started the fire, but it is believed to have started in the garage and spread to the attic of the home.
Six people lived at the home. Firefighters said it is not clear how many were home at the time, but all were able to make it out safely.
One firefighter was taken to Spartanburg Medical Center for dehydration and has since been released. A second was injured a few hours later and is being taken to the hospital. Officials said the injury is non-life threatening.
Multiple fire departments from Spartanburg County, Greenville County, and Western North Carolina responded to the fire with more than 50 firefighters.
