DACUSVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Investigators say two children have died in a house fire in Pickens County.
Authorities said the fire was reported at a home near Dacusville around 4:30 a.m. Sunday.
Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley said 7-year-old Timothy Graham and 4-year-old Devin Graham were killed in the fire.
Authorities say the children's mother and a 2-year-old child survived, but have been taken to a burn center in Augusta, Ga.
Chief Deputy Creed Hashe says Pickens County deputies are investigating the cause of the fire, but it appears to be accidental. Hashe says the mother told officers she was cooking something when the blaze started.
