MARION, S.C. (AP) _ Authorities say a 36-year-old woman and her 4-year-old daughter have died in a house fire in Marion County.

Coroner Jerry Richardson said a neighbor called 911 around 3 a.m. Wednesday after seeing flames coming from the home in the southern part of Marion County.

Investigators say the bodies of Franchesca Williams and her daughter Catlyn Ellison were found inside after the fire was extinguished.

Authorities say the cause of the fire doesn't appear suspicious, but the State Law Enforcement Division is investigating since there were fatalities.
