No injuries in fire that followed explosion at Greenwood house

Follow Daily Journal:

Firefighters are investigating the cause of a Greenwood house fire that started after a loud explosion.

The fire started shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday at 673 Saville Row. When firefighters arrived, flames were coming through the roof of the single-story home and a recreational vehicle also was ablaze, Lt. Tom Kite said.

The fire was primarily in the attic and attached garage, and the roof was damaged by fire, smoke and water, Kite said. About 40 percent of the house was damaged, and it is now unlivable, he said.

The residents, two adults and a teen, got out of the home and were not injured. The only injury occurred when a firefighter fell and twisted a wrist, Kite said.

A neighbor told police that she heard a loud explosion and saw the blaze almost immediately. No other homes were damaged. Investigators don’t yet know the cause of the fire or where it started, Kite said.
