Officials are investigating the dumping of about 200 tires dumped into a rural Spartanburg County creek.
Multiple media outlets reported that Jaime Nelson with the Spartanburg County Department of Environmental Enforcement says officials don't know who dumped the tires in Obed Creek near Campobello.
Nelson says the rims had been taken out of the tires and he thinks the metal may have been sold for scrap.
Officials say the tires will be removed from the creek by the end of the week and disposed of properly at the county landfill.
