Slick snow made a curvy rural driveway impassable to fire trucks in Greenville on Tuesday afternoon, leaving firefighters without water as flames ripped through a family home.
Jamie and Carla Humphries and their three children escaped unharmed, but a fire destroyed their home, built in 2006, at 124 Lofton Ridge Lane with a sweeping view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The family called 911 to report a chimney fire at about 1:30 p.m.
Within minutes, Lt. Mike Gibson of the Middlebrook Fire Department arrived at the scene in his personal pickup truck, in which he struggled but succeeded in making it to the home.
“We tried to fight with a water hose,” Gibson said.
