According to the Clarkton Fire Department, the home located on NC 211 is a complete loss.


The youth baseball team used the property for a fall fundraiser each year. Money raised from the event went toward operations for the upcoming season.

BladenOnline is reporting the group lost everything, including all equipment and costumes, that was stored in the home.

The group is now searching for a new location to host its annual haunted house fundraiser.

“It takes a lot of money to run a youth baseball program,” a person close to the Clarkton program said in an email. “As of now, we have no idea what the future holds. The hardest part is finding another location. Everything was lost, costumes, props, fog machines, stereo, etc. And thousands of hours of work.”

The cause of the fire had not been determined.
