Fire Destroys Farmhouse

A very old tin-roofed farmhouse was turned to rubble in a matter of minutes early Saturday morning.

Clayton, Cleveland and Wilson’s Mills firefighters were called to the scene on Government Road just past 4:00am and did all they could to save the structure.

The building was a total loss. Firefighters extinguished the ashes and kept the hot fire from affecting other nearby structures.

The Johnston County Fire Marshall’s Office responded and is investigating the cause. There were no injuries reported.
