Three roads are back open this morning after they were closed off to allow crews to respond to a massive fire that broke out in Spartanburg County Sunday night.
On scene witnesses said business along Simuel Road has multiple fire departments on the scene as crews worked to control the blaze.
We later learned from Westview-Fairforest fire chief Tracy Williams the blaze began around 5 p.m. and started as grass fire near the ADO Corporation building and quickly engulfed several bales of polyester. Of the 300 bales on the property, Williams estimated about one-quarter of them were burning.
On Monday, Williams estimated the fire had probably caused between 30 and 40 thousand dollars in damages.
Westview-Fairforest crews needed help tackling the fire, calling on assistance from nine area fire departments. They estimated about 27 personnel were on hand to douse the flames.
Williams also said witness reports indicate a group of juveniles were nearby when the fire was first noticed, prompting the opening of an investigation by Spartanburg County deputies.
