Local News

SPARTANBURG CO., SC (WSPA) – Firefighters are battling a large fire at a condemned Spartanburg County motel.

The fire broke out Wednesday night at the Spartanburg Motor Lodge on Charisma Drive.

The North Spartanburg Fire District along with Hilltop, City of Spartanburg, Whitney, Boiling Springs, Cherokee Springs, Westview, and members of the Command Team responded.

Firefighters said one of the buildings suffered damage to several rooms.

There were no injuries.

According to North Spartanburg Fire Chief Brent Lewis, it appears the fire was set intentionally or accidentally since there is no power on the building.

He said Spartanburg County Environmental Enforcement is aware of the condition of the building after the fire, and they are working to address the situation.

There was no evidence this fire had anything to do with any unrest or protest.

The motel previously caught fire in January of 2020 and in February of 2020.

Residents were forced out of the Spartanburg Motor Lodge when it was condemned in June 2019.
