A house on fire in a quiet South Carolina residential area ended up being more than just a blaze. What first responders found in the burning building was everyone's nightmare. Seven people had been inside the home now, six were dead and one was clinging to life.

According to WCSC News The Colleton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a house fire on Folly Creek Lane in Greenpond around 11 a.m. Sunday. One person was transported to an area hospital by CARE flight in critical condition, deputies said.
