Woman dies in SC fire, nearest fire station empty

Sep 15, 2010 12:39:00 PM - thestate.com
A woman has died in a fire at a home near the South Carolina coast and officials say the fire station closest to her home was empty at the time.

Multiple media outlets reported firefighters were called to a home near Conway about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Leslie Yancey with Horry County Fire Rescue says smoke and flames were coming from the mobile home when firefighters arrived.

Horry County Coroner Robert Edge says 51-year-old Angela Cannon died from smoke inhalation.

Chief Garry Alderman says a volunteer station about a half mile from the home was unmanned and Conway firefighters were the first to arrive. Alderman says only 18 of the county's 32 fire stations are staffed full-time.
