Two residents of Darlington, South Carolina, were killed when their adjacent homes were destroyed by fire last Sunday.

The father, a 67-year-old veteran journalist lived in the main house whereas the son lived behind him in the “guest house.”

Firefighters received a frantic phone call from the son Sunday morning, stating that the main house had caught aflame, and reported to the communications officer that he was entering the home to search for his father.

Sadly, by the time the firefighters arrived on site, both men were found dead. One body was found near the front of the house, and the second body was found toward the back of the house.

The Darlington Fire Department battled flames for over 2 hours before they were able to enter the house and discover the bodies, which were pronounced dead on scene. The fire completely destroyed the 110-year-old two-story home.
