NEW INFO: Fire At Greenville Apartment Complex

Investigators confirm that a grease fire caused Wednesday's apartment fire in Greenville.

The fire department says the resident noticed the grease fire on the stove and moved the pan to the sink and turned on the water. That just intensified the fire.

There are ten units in the building that caught fire at Concord Apartments. The fire department says people living in 3 of those units will be allowed to move back in, but the other seven units will need extensive renovations.
