Spartanburg firefighters say a woman died after her apartment caught fire and the victim's mother didn't even know she was inside the home.
Authorities say firefighters were called to the blaze around 5:30 a.m. Saturday.
The blaze was quickly put out, and a woman who escaped the fire said there was no one else inside. But firefighters found 22-year-old Ashley Meadows-Garnette in a bedroom. She died a short time later at the hospital.
Investigators determined Meadows-Garnette came home early Saturday without her mother knowing and left something cooking when she fell asleep, causing the fire.
No one else was injured in the blaze.
