JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

A male teenager was killed during a home fire on John's Island Saturday morning, according to Fire Marshal Battalion Chief Ryan Kunitzer.

Lupe Zamudio, 12, died at MUSC Saturday after a fire at his residence, according to Sheila Williams with the Charleston County Coroner's Office.

At approximately 11:32 a.m., units with the St. John's Fire District, Charleston Fire Department, St. Andrews Fire Department, Charleston County Sheriffs Office, and Charleston County EMS responded to a structure fire on Grimshaw Road.

When units arrived, heavy fire and smoke was venting from the front of a single story mobile home structure.

Fire personnel began an interior attack on the fire and began a primary search of the structure.

Firefighters located Zamudio in a rear bedroom and rapidly brought him out of the structure, Kunitzer said.

EMS transported the victim to a local hospital where he died. 

The St. John's Fire Marshal Division and Charleston County Sheriffs Office is investigating the fire.
