It took crews from five departments to extinguish a fire Wednesday afternoon at a home on Hickory Crossroads Road outside of Kenly. Janice Watkins was waiting for a ride to go see her husband, Donnie, who was in the hospital. Watkins told firefighters she saw smoke in her living room, called 911, then ran outside the residence. Crews from Kenly, Micro, Princeton , Nahunta, and Poly Watson responded. Watkins said her home, built in 1940, was not insured. The home was a total loss. The Red Cross is assisting the Watkins family. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Johnston County Fire Marshal’s Office.
