Two homes were damaged this morning in a fire in Kinston.
Police say the call came in around 8:00 a.m. to a vacant home in the 200 block of South East Street. That house received heavy fire and smoke damage. The exterior of a home next door received minor damage.
The fire department says they have not determined a cause, though the fire is not being treated as suspicious.
Earlier this year a series of arson fires struck eight vacant homes in Kinston between January and May. No one has been arrested for those fires.
