Fire destroys home near Norene

The Wilson Post

A fire that destroyed a home Monday morning was reportedly caused by an oil lamp and bug bombs, but resulted in no injuries, said Wilson County Emergency Management Agency Director John Jewell.

The home, located at 75 Osborne Road, about a mile east of the Norene community, caught fire Monday morning when a woman who was cleaning the home, set off a bug bomb, which in turn ignited an oil lamp.

Somehow the bug bomb set that lamp on fire, it fell onto the floor and caught the whole floor on fire, Jewell said.
