FOUR OAKS – A home in the 600 block of Devil’s Racetrack Road outside of Four Oaks burned Monday. Fire crews from several departments including Four Oaks, Smithfield, and Strickland’s Crossroads battled the blaze reported just before 3:00 o’clock this afternoon.
Devil’s Racetrack Road was shut down for more than 90 minutes due to the number of emergency vehicles on the scene.
Firefighters had to stretch a fire hose nearly two-tenths of a mile to the nearest hydrant to get water to battle the fire.
The cause has not been determined. There was no immediate word on any injuries.
