Sam Price, 78, and his wife, 67-year-old Joanne Price, were known for their generosity in their neighborhood outside of Clover.
"He'd get bread and give it to anyone who needed it or wanted it. He'd get it by the truckload," said neighbor Steve Shull.
Shull's dog woke him up barking early Tuesday morning. Shull looked outside, and didn't know what was going on next door at first.
"I thought it was a wreck at first, then I saw the house was on fire and knew there was nothing I could do," he said.
That's because firefighters from three departments were already at the double-wide mobile home on Highway 55 West.
Sam and Joanne Price were found dead inside the home. The coroner said preliminary results show they died from smoke inhalation.
A third person, a woman, was also inside, but made it out to safety and was taken to the hospital. Her identity has not been released.
The home looks gutted from the front, but on the far right side there is a gaping hole, and debris in the yard.
Sheriff's deputies, county fire investigators and SLED agents were on the scene for much of the day. They obtained search warrants to allow them to go over every inch of the house.
Though officials tell Channel 9 the fire does not look suspicious, it's not the first time the home has caught fire. Bethel firefighters said they went to the house in 2008 when the same part of the home caught fire. There was very little damage that time. It's not clear if this fire has any connection to that one.
Neighbors said the Prices kept large freezers and refrigerators in that part of their home. They did a lot of cooking and preparing food.
Bud Faires used to be Joanne Price's boss.
"She worked for me at a mill for eight or 10 years," Faires said. "She was a real good worker."
Faires also lives across the street from the burned-out home. He saw the fire and the yellow police tape and said the community has lost two very good people.
"They'd help anybody they could. They'll be missed," he said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it appears accidental.
