GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Red Cross is assisting four families whose homes were damaged by a fire in Greenville County on Saturday.

The incident took place on Greensboro Ct in Greenville.

Berea, Parker and Duncan Chapel Fire Departments all responded to the scene.

Officials with Berea Fire Department said a row of townhouses caught fire. Three people were inside during the blaze. One of them was injured and transported to the hospital. That individual's condition is unknown.

The Berea Fire Department said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Witnesses told FOX that someone had been shooting fireworks inside a home. Others told FOX they could see smoke in the area.

The Red Cross is assisting the four families with food, clothing, lodging and other essentials.

Brandon Huntley, the neighbor who called in the fire, spoke with FOX and said he heard a loud noise that sounded like a mortar shell from a firework. Huntley told FOX that when he stepped out to the back of the town homes, he could see where a window had been blown out and could see fire coming out of it.

Huntley said when he ran around to the front of the homes, he heard yelling and screaming and saw fireworks coming down from a whole in the ceiling of one house.

The person who lives in the town home is in his late 20's, according to Huntley, and his parents and son also live there. Huntley said he believed the fireworks somehow managed to go off in the house because he walked into their home and saw them flying everywhere inside.

According to Huntley, the entire unit of town homes was condemned due to the fire.
