Body found in aftermath of Hopkins house fire

Mar 8, 2011 8:02:00 AM - thestate.com
An early-morning fire in Hopkins may have taken a life.

Fire crews still were sifting through the ashes of a home at 522 Harmon Road at 7 a.m. after putting out the fire called in around 5:40 a.m., interim Columbia-Richland Fire Service Chief Aubrey Jenkins said.

The department has notified the Richland County Coroner's Office after finding a body, he said. A pickup truck was in the driveway, Jenkins said. The identity of the body and cause of death will have to wait for the coroner's office investigation.

The home was fully engulfed in fire and had already collapsed when firefighters arrived on the scene, he said.

It was not clear who called the fire department.
