ZEBULON — The cause of a fire that killed a woman from out of state looks like it will remain a mystery, officials have said.
Fire and rescue personnel responded to 49 P.G. Pearce Road before 3 a.m. on Aug. 25 to find the house on fire.
Three adults and two children, ages 7 and 4, escaped the blaze, but 55-year-old Emma Jean Witters died in the fire.
Sheriff Jerry Jones said investigators may never be able to determine the cause.
