fire

A family of three had their house damaged Feb. 9 when their rear deck caught fire, according to Greenwood Fire Chief Terry Strange.

The house at 711 Wright Ave. caught fire at about 12:57 a.m., Strange said, and firefighters were on the scene dousing the flames for nearly three hours. The house had moderate structure damage, with light smoke damage throughout, he said.

Though firefighters learned the fire started on the house's deck, the scene was turned over to the Greenwood Police Department to further investigate the fire.
