Family Escapes Fire In Kinston Home

A family escaped a fire in their house in the east.

The fire was reported just after 9:00 p.m. Tuesday night in the north side of Kinston on Railfence Drive; that's in the Farmgate subdivision. Kinston Fire Chief, Don Crawford, told WITN the resident was cooking on the stove, turned off the burners, and went to see his mother down the road. Once the fire started, he was able to return and get his children out of the home. That resident tried battling the blaze with a fire extinguisher and a neighbor's help.

Crawford said no one was injured in the fire and damage was minimal.
