A pair of fires destroyed two Brunswick County homes within the past week.
The first fire took place in Supply last Wednesday, Aug. 13, Brunswick County Fire Marshal Scott Garner said.
An off-duty firefighter drove past a home at 680 Hewett Road near Stone Chimney Road and saw that it was on fire. He called 911, but by the time emergency personnel arrived the fire was “fully involved,” Garner said.
Garner said no one was home when it happened and the cause of the fire is unknown. The house is considered a total loss.
