Man's body badly burned in Beech Island house fire

 

The body of a man was found Tuesday afternoon after a fire consumed an abandoned house off Atomic Road in Beech Island, Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said.

The Beech Island fire department was dispatched a little after 2 p.m. to find the home engulfed in flames. After extinguishing the flames and starting cleanup, a firefighter discovered the body, Carlton said.

Because it was so badly burned, an identification is impossible before the autopsy, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
