Horry County Coroner Robert Edge has identified the woman killed in a mobile home fire Tuesday as Angela Cannon, 51.
Horry County Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the fire on Firehouse Road, just off Kates Bay Road near Conway around 10:30 Tuesday night.
Fire officials tell NewsChannel 15 that when crews arrived, flames could be seen coming from the home.
Neighbors told firefighters that a woman was believed to be inside, but only a dog was found. However, after the fire was under control firefighters found the woman's body.
"We couldn't do anything. We thought we heard a dog at the back window. We tried to break in and get the dog out but it was just so full of smoke we couldn't do anything," said Anita Cannon, a neighbor who called 911 when she saw the fire.
According to neighbors, the woman was a homebound cancer patient and her husband was out of town.
