MULLINS, SC (WBTW) – A third person has died as the result of a house fire in Mullins last month.

Rose Berry Weeks, 65, of Mullins died on Jan. 7 as a result of the fire, said Marion County Coroner Jerry Richardson  

The house, on the 200 block of Clark Street, caught fire on Dec. 24. First responders had to pull the three victims out of the house.

Marion County Coroner Jerry Richardson identified the other two victims as Jonathan Vandroff and Sharon Davis. Both also were from Mullins. Vandroff died at the scene of the fire, Davis died later at the hospital from her injuries. 

An investigative team from SLED was on the scene, searching inside and outside the house. Right now, investigators do not suspect any foul play.

The cause of the fire has not been determined yet, but several neighbors at the scene said an explosion was heard, possibly caused by kerosene.
