Children Accused Of Setting Fire To Mobile Home

Two children, ages 5 and 7, are accused of setting fire to an unoccupied mobile home, Tuesday afternoon, on Country Lane outside of Clayton. No charges are expected to be filed against the youths. Firefighters found a singlewide mobile home, owned by Emory Howard, fully engulfed in flames when they arrived. Detective Lt. Chris Strickland with the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said the children were playing with a lighter when the fire started. An adjacent mobile home was damaged by the intense heat. Clayton and Cleveland firefighters responded to the blaze, which still remains under investigation by Clayton Fire Marshal Tony Atkinson and sheriff’s detectives.
