Waterfront home total loss after Wednesday fire

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WITN) - A waterfront home in Onslow County was destroyed by fire Wednesday morning.

Fire investigators are trying to determine exactly what sparked the fire in the Vista Cay community on Harbour Drive in Hubert. The home is on the Intracoastal Waterway.

The fire was reported around 8:00 a.m., according to neighbors. Flames were coming out of one section of the two story home when the first crews arrived.

Eight fire departments fought the blaze.

Onslow County Fire Marshal Brian Kelly says the home was unoccupied at the time as this is a second home for the owners.

Records show the tax value on the property was $625.000.
