Cause of fire that destroyed Craven home under investigation

Published: Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 09:13 AM.

“The cause has not been determined,” Whitford said, describing the damage to the home as significant. “All that will come in the investigation, but there’s nothing suspicious about it.”

Whitford said the couple living in the home lost nearly everything and was offered help through the Red Cross.

The home was down a narrow dirt road, and one of the Havelock fire trucks responding to the scene ended up stuck in a ditch. Havelock Fire Chief Rick Zaccardelli said the truck did have some damage.

“It got caught in a rut and ran off the road,” he said.

Zaccardelli said he did not have an estimated cost of the damage to the truck.
