TRENTON, N.C. (WNCT) – One person is dead following a Sunday night fire in Jones County.

Firefighters were called out to a structure fire on Ten Mile Fork Road just after 9:30p.m. Sunday, said Jones County Fire Marshal Tom Pike.


Pike said one person died in the fire.

A father and son used the building as a hunting lodge, Pike said.

It appears the fire was started by a heater. However, the fire marshal’s office is still investigating.

The name of the deceased is not being released until all of the family is notified.
