COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- One of the survivors of the beach house fire that killed seven college students in North Carolina says she thought her friends were already outside when she ran from the flames. Fallon Sposato of Orlando, Florida, says she and her boyfriend awoke to a blaring alarm and smoke seeping into the first-floor bedroom of the house in Ocean Isle Beach on Sunday morning. Sposato told The Associated Press yesterday nobody was outside yet when she made it out. Six University of South Carolina students and one Clemson University student died in the fire. Six USC students survived. Those who died ranged from 17 to 19 years old. Sposato says there were no illegal drugs in the house, although students were drinking alcohol.
