Police say a bare light bulb that was hanging in a closet started a house fire this morning in Kinston.
Firefighters got the call around 10:20 a.m. to the home on Railfence Drive.
Police say the light bulb caught clothes on fire that were in the closet and caused some $10,000 in damage to the home, mostly from the smoke.
The homeowner told police he remembers turning the closet light on and then walking outside when the fire started.
No one was injured in the fire.
