COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The medical examiner in North Carolina says it will take some time to identify the seven college students killed in a house fire at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. But The Associated Press has confirmed several identities through relatives and close friends. Eighteen-year-old University of South Carolina freshman Lauren Mahon was from Simpsonville. She was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority. Nineteen-year-old sophomore Allison Walden was from Chagrin Falls, Ohio. She was also a member of the sorority at USC. Eighteen-year-old freshman Cassidy Pendley was from North Charleston. She was also a member of the USC sorority. Eighteen-year-old freshman Will Rhea was from Florence. He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at USC. Nineteen-year-old sophomore Justin Anderson was from Greenville. He was also a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at USC. One other USC student and a Clemson University student died in the fire. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
