Heavy Damage In Mobile Home Fire

Imagine what it would feel like to come home after a doctor's appointment and realize, you home was destroyed when you got back. That's what happened to one family in Craven County after a fire destroyed a trailer home in Cove City.

Fire ripped through the interior, burning everything. Homeowners Juana Lopez and Juan Rodriguez lost all of their photographs and memories in the fire.

Cove City fire crews battled the blaze around 3:45 on Friday and say the fire started in the bedroom due to an electrical radio appliance.

Authorities say nobody was inside the home during the fire.
