CLOVER, S.C. (AP) - A volunteer firefighter and a passerby were the first to respond to a house fire near Clover and helped rescue a woman from the blaze.

The Rock Hill Herald (https://bit.ly/1zZ0aN2 ) reports firefighter Luke Caldwell and Charlie Kennedy rescued a 62-year-old woman Monday afternoon. Clover Fire Chief Charlie Love says firefighters from five departments responded to the fire, which took two hours to get under control.

Caldwell says the woman was unresponsive when she was pulled out of the house. She suffered burns from the blaze and was airlifted to the Baptist Health Burn Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

York County fire investigator Charles Williamson says he determined the fire was caused by a discarded cigarette.
