The incident was reported late Sunday afternoon south of Holly Springs in the 7000 block of Moonlit Drive, according to Holly Springs Fire Chief LeRoy Smith. No one was injured in the blaze at the home, which was fully engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived. Damages are estimated at $45,000, Smith said.

Burn ban issued for 26 counties due to fire risk 

Due to increased fire risk, the N.C. Forest Service has issued a ban on all open burning and has canceled all burning permits for the following North Carolina counties: Anson, Beaufort, Bladen, Brunswick, Carteret, Columbus, Craven, Cumberland, Duplin, Greene, Harnett, Hoke, Jones, Lee, Lenoir, Moore, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, Pitt, Richmond, Robeson, Sampson, Scotland and Wayne. The burning ban goes into effect at noon and will remain in effect until further notice. "Our state is getting drier and hotter, and wildfires like those conditions," said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "These conditions coming during spring wildfire season when wildfire activity and fire risks are already elevated, make this burn ban necessary to protect life and property in North Carolina."
