CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) – Authorities in Johnston County are investigating a possible arson at a mobile home.

On Saturday, a passerby called 911 after seeing flames coming from under the front porch of a mobile home on Glen Laurel Road. No one was home at the time and there were no injuries, but the fire burned through the roof and the home is a total loss, the Clayton Fire Department said.

The Clayton Fire Department said there was also a fire at the home about a month ago and said on Facebook that this fire “appears suspicious.”

The investigation has been turned over to the Johnston County Sheriff’s office.
