Several residents had their Christmas mornings interrupted by an electrical box fire.

Greenville Firefighters responded right around the 11:00 hour to the Augusta Trails subdivision on Masters Lane off of Frog Level Road.

The fires were extinguished and Greenville Utilities was called into investigate. Power to several homes was shut down while the investigation continues into what started the original fire.

Damage was minimal, according to firefighters.

There were no injuries, according to firefighters.
