An 80-year-old man and his 6-year-old nephew are dead after a fire tore through their Belvoir home in Pitt County Friday.
Family and neighbors are still in shock and are asking what caused the blaze at 2199 Porter Road; the blaze that took the lives of 80-year-old Jacob Howard and 6-year-old Kayvon Lamar Council.
Officials are still investigating the case.
We spoke with Christian Lee who is Howard's sister-in-law and next door neighbor. She says she first noticed the flames bursting out the back of the victim's double wide trailer.
Officials say the two victims were the only people inside the home.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
