Dec. 29, 2017
SUMTER, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a woman killed in a South Carolina fire was found on the porch of her home.
Fire officials tell The Sumter Item that 68-year-old Eva Harvin was found on the porch of her Sumter home just after 1 a.m. Thursday.
First responders say the woman used a wheelchair, which was also on the porch.
Harvin's 71-year-old husband was flown to Augusta Burn Center for treatment of burns to at least two-thirds of his body.
Authorities are still trying to figure out how the fire started but say they don't think it was suspicious.
