FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - A Florence woman is facing charges after police say she left her five-year-old son home alone to go to work.

Florence Police Major Carlos Raines says 24-year-old Whitney Tarikya McCall has been arrested and charged with unlawful conduct toward a child.

McCall allegedly left her son alone and went to work. At home, the son turned on the stove, and left their apartment to look for help when he could not figure out how to turn the stove off.

Neighbors found the boy, turned off the stove, and called police. The boy is now in the custody of his grandparents.
