      Woman found dead in home destroyed by fire

      Investigators in Greenville say they are looking into the death of a woman found in a home that had been destroyed by a fire in Taylors.


      GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Investigators in Greenville say they are looking into the death of a woman found in a home that had been destroyed by a fire in Taylors.


      Greenville County deputy coroner Barry Wright said Wednesday the woman has not been identified. Wright says investigators are using X-rays, dental and fingerprint records to aid in the identification and an autopsy was to be performed.


      He says the death is being treated as a possible homicide.


      Taylors Fire Chief Bobby Baker says firefighters were called to the scene early Tuesday. The body was discovered after debris was removed.


      Wright says a car linked to the fire scene by its registration was found a few hours later about six miles away.
