NEW BERN -

A suspicious fire that destroyed a shed Saturday morning on Georgia Avenue in New Bern remains under investigation, according to New Bern Fire Marshal Danny Hill.

The fire left minor damage at an occupied home near the shed and also damaged two vehicles, Hill said.

Firefighters got the call about 5 a.m. Saturday.

No one was hurt.

That area has had several suspicious fires over the past few years, Hill said.
