19 Families Are Left Without A Home After Fire

The flames broke out at Adkin Home apartments on Towerhill Road just after nine Tuesday night. Several residents had to be evacuated from second floor windows. Four residents were treated for smoke inhalation, but no one was seriously hurt. The fire was contained in the apartment where it started, but there is heavy smoke and water damage throughout the building. The Lenoir County Red Cross chapter is helping the families.
