Family Was Renovating Home That Burned In Suspected Arson

One family is devastated following the string of suspected arson fires in Beaufort and Washington counties.

A young family was renovating the Washington County home on Highway 32 South in Plymouth, and is now left with ashes and questions.

Darlene Whitehead says her family has been renovating the home since August and planned to move there soon. She says the fire is especially heartbreaking because they didn't have homeowners insurance. She says she received the deed to the home in the mail just hours after she found out it had burned down.

The Washington County and Beaufort County Sheriff's Offices are working together to determine if all five fires overnight Tuesday are connected.
