LUMBERTON — Investigators are looking for the person responsible for a fire that destroyed a Lumberton home on Wednesday, according to the Robeson County Sheriff’s Department.
The fire was set to a couch inside the single-wide mobile home at Lot 31 of Homestead Mobile Home Park, at Pine Log Road, at about 1:46 p.m., according to sheriff’s Lt. Brian Duckworth.
Neighbors saw a tall, slim, shirtless Indian man, wearing dark shorts and a backward baseball cap walk out of the back door of the home shortly before they saw the fire, Duckworth said. The man was seen walking in the direction of Watts Road, he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 671-3100. Callers can remain anonymous.
