Roscoe Woodruff , 83, died Sunday April 13, at Greenville Memorial Hospital, Greenville, SC.
A lit cigarette was ruled the cause of a grass fire that raged out of control last Wednesday causing $1.761 million of damage that left four families displaced at Riverwood Farms.
Fire Chief Chris Harvey told City Council Tuesday night the actual cigarette was found along the road right away behind 306 Gladstone Way. “We can tell where the fire started by a V-shaped burn pattern from the cigarette that was found,” Harvey said.
Fire destroyed a house and a 3-unit condominium at Riverwood Farms, a gated community on Gibbs Shoals Road and Gladstone Way Wednesday afternoon.
Greer Fire Chief Chris Harvey said there was no loss of life or injuries but several firefighters were treated by EMS.
