Investigators said they do not believe a fire that broke out at a Lenoir County home Wednesday morning is suspicious.

The fire started in the laundry room of the mobile home on Institute Road near Kinston, said Roger Dail of Lenoir County Emergency Services. He said he did not think the blaze spread significantly.

The scene was cleared as of 3:40 a.m. Wednesday, according to dispatchers.

A family lived at the home, Dail said. There were no reports of injuries.

Investigators were looking into the cause of the blaze.
