Lisa Carter, 26, died in an early morning house fire in Charleston that also claimed the lives of six children and Carter's boyfriend.
Charleston Fire Department Capt. Ken Tyree said the fatal fire that killed eight people, including six children "definitely the most horrendous and tragic incident that we have faced." With him are Charleston Mayor Danny Jones (far left) Assistant Fire Chief Bob Sharp (second from right) and Fire Chief Chuck Overstreet (right).
Six children and two adults were killed when a fire broke out at this home on Arlington Avenue in Charleston at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday. This is believed to be the deadliest fire in Charleston since the 1949 fire at the Woolworth department store, where seven firefighters were killed.
