Teen dies in Columbia Co. house fire

A teenager is dead after a home in Columbia County went up in flames Friday morning. Fellow neighbors in Amelia Landing  said it started around 7A.M.

One neighbor said, "I came out of the house and I saw all the fire trucks in the street. I looked down the street and the house was smoking."

He didn't want to be identified, but said three people were home.  Fox 54 learned they were 18 year old Logan Davenport, Sheree davenport and an unidentified male.

Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins said Logan died from what could be smoke inhalation and burns.  Sheree was taken to the Doctor's Hospital ER and was listed in good condition. The unidentified male also checked in, but his condition isn't known.

Columbia County Special Operations Chief Danny Kuhlmann said first responders on the scene couldn't figure out where the smoke was coming from initially. They said the street was completely covered.

Chief Kuhlmann said , "We got a report of an aggravated fire alarm at first and then it turned into a working structure fire."

He said neighbors ran to help the three get out of the house.

Chief Kuhlmann said, "Neighbors had rescued an elderly man from the residence. Once fire crews got here, they entered and found a teenage boy."

Columbia county Fire Officials said there's no word yet on what started the fire and no word on when a determination will be made.

An autopsy is scheduled for Logan in Atlanta.
