COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Fire department officials say one person has been found dead in a fire at a home in Richland County.

Columbia-Richland Fire Department spokesman Brick Lewis said the body was found around 8 p.m. Wednesday just northeast of Columbia.

The victim’s name has not been released.

Lewis said light smoke was coming from the house when firefighters arrived. Most of the damage occurred in a bedroom.

The Richland County fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
