People escaped a house fire in the Pitt County town of Farmville that started around 2:30 a.m. Monday.
The fire broke out at 4273 Belcher St. in Farmville. Fire officials tell WITN that the fire started in the back of the house, but the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Crews stayed on the scene for a few hours to make sure there were no hot spots burning in the attic.
The house actually contained two apartments. One woman who lives in the front part of the house with three others, including a child, says they all escaped without injuries. She says when they heard the
smoke alarm, and then saw smoke, they knew it was time to get out.
