A woman was killed and her son injured in a house fire in Hopkins Friday afternoon.
Mary Sumter, 75, died from complications of the fire, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said Saturday. She lived in the home with her son.
Firefighters arrived on scene of the fire at 1075 Pineboro Road after 3:15 p.m. to find the home ablaze. The male resident of the home standing outside told firefighters that a woman was still in the house, Columbia Fire Department spokesman Brick Lewis said.
As the man was taken to the hospital, the house was entered and woman was located.
