Crews Extinguish Williamston House Fire

Fire crews in Williamston got called to a house fire early Thursday morning.

Officials say the home at 105 N. Pearl Street caught fire. Dispatchers received the call just after 4 a.m. The Williamston Fire Department responded.

One person was in the house, officials say, and they escaped without injury. Crews were able to extinguish the fire in the bedroom. They're not sure what started it, but they're looking at whether the fire is the result of an electrical problem.

The person living there is now staying with family, officials say.
