Fire Destroys Home, Roof Collapses

Fire officials are still checking hot spots after a fire destroyed a home in Hyde County early Saturday morning.

According to officials they were called out to a home at 32566 US Highway 264 in Engelhard around 6:30 a.m.

When firefighters got there flames were coming through the roof. The roof eventually collapsed.

No one was home at the time, but a family of five does live there.

Officials believe the fire started in the breaker box.

The home is a total loss.

No one was injured while fighting the blaze.
