Faulty Flue Sparks House Fire

A faulty wood stove flue is to blame for a fire that destroyed a home Sunday afternoon, that's according to the Onslow County Sheriff's Office.

Onslow County deputies say the fire on Ramsey Road happened around 3:45 p.m. Six fire departments battle the blaze.

An investigator says the fire was caused by hot ashes getting into the attic due to a bad connection with the flue into the home's chimney.
