Duplin County authorities confirm fire fatality
ALBERTSON, N.C. (WITN) - Duplin County authorities are releasing few details on a deadly fire that happened Tuesday morning.
A county spokesman would only confirm that a person did die in the fire on Highway 903 north of Albertson.
WITN has learned that the State Fire Marshal’s Office is assisting with the fire investigation.
A sheriff’s cruiser blocked the private road leading to the scene. A sign at that road said the property was owned by Red Oak Farms.
The state Department of Agriculture said the fire happened at a trailer that was located on the same road, but it was not connected to the farming operation.
