FIRST ON WITN: Arson Fire In Kinston

Fire crews battled a single-story house fire in Kinston that started very early this morning. Officials believe an arsonist set the vacant house on fire.

The home is on the corner of Caswell and Dover in Kinston. Crews have extinguished the blaze but remained on the scene at 4:30 a.m.

The house has significant fire damage, particularly visible on the roof.

Officials say the call came in at 2:50 a.m., but they don't know how long it was on fire before anyone noticed. The house was completely vacant with nothing inside. Investigators have been able to so far determine the fire was started in the back carport and storage room and spread to the entire house.

    My father built this house in 1952. I moved in the house when I was two months old. He sold the home to my uncle in 1981 when he and my mom built a new home. Lots of memories for me. It was the only home I lived in while growing up in Kinston in the fifties and sixties.
