Body found after firefighters put out Newberry County blaze

LITTLE MOUNTAIN, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say one person has been found dead in a house fire in Newberry County.

Sheriff Lee Foster says rescuers found the body inside the Little Mountain home after firefighters put out the blaze around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Foster says he has asked the State Law Enforcement Division to investigate because there were no witnesses to the fire and no one else appeared to be inside the home.

The coroner’s office has not released the victim’s name and how that person died.
