A woman whose husband died in a fire at their Clarendon County home has also died from injuries in that blaze.
The coroner's office says 56-year-old Deloris Crummell and her 59-year-old husband Gary called to report the fire Friday night and then tried to retrieve valuables from their Summerton home before firefighters arrived.
But they didn't escape in time and both had to be rescued.
The husband died shortly after he was pulled from the home. His wife was taken to a Columbia hospital but died Saturday night.
The coroner's office says it appears both died from smoke inhalation.
