Family Flees Fire

A mother, father and two children were able to safely escape their burning mobile home Saturday afternoon in Lenoir County.

It happened on Eric Sparrow Road in Deep Run around 12:30 p.m. Law enforcement officials who were in the area for an unrelated matter actually called in the fire.

Officials believe the blaze started because of a candle in the kitchen. The home is most likely a complete loss because of heat and smoke damage.
