Crews Called Out To House Fire For Second Time

Officials were called out to an early morning fire Sunday in Carteret County and it turned out it was the same home that was on fire Friday night.

Officials got a call around 5:30 a.m. Sunday that a home on Emerald Drive was on fire again.

When they arrived they found the attic and bathroom engulfed in flames.

Officials said apparently there were some hot spots in the walls that the water didn't get to the first time.

Officials and neighbors are now monitoring the house just in case there are any more hot spots that continue to smolder.
