A family of four lost everything in a house fire Wednesday morning.
The fire happened at a home on Pearson Road, that's south of Kinston.
A neighbor says the home was fully engulfed in flames around 8:00 a.m.
A mother, her toddler and an infant were home at the time, and all managed to get out safely. Sadly though, the family cat died in the fire.
The neighbor tells us that firefighters said a space heater started the fire.
