At approximately 4:01 a.m., the Greenville City Fire Department responded to 111 Winchester Ave. to the reports of smoke entering into the structure.

According to the Greenville Fire Department, upon arrival on the scene crews were faced with heavy black smoke filling the plant as they searched for and located the source.
