NEW INFO: Vacant Mobile Home Fire Called Suspicious

Authorities say a fire at a vacant mobile home in Pitt County is suspicious and they're investigating whether this fire is related to a string of arsons in neighboring Beaufort County.

The call to Manning's Mobile Home Park In Pitt County came in around 9:15 Tuesday night.

Dispatchers say Eastern Pines Fire Rescue arrived on scene to find the trailer on Longleaf Lane fully engulfed in flames.

The home was vacant and no electricity turned on, which makes authorities believe the fire is suspicious.

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office is now talking with Beaufort County investigators to see if there are any similarities between Tuesday night's fire and the arson cases in Beaufort County.
