Cigarette May Have Caused Sunday Fire - Brevard NC


Family members of the woman injured in the mobile home fire on Sunday said the fire probably started from a cigarette.

According to Transylvania County Fire Marshall Gerald Grose, 49-year-old Lynette Ward, who lived in the See Off Mountain Road mobile home, was flown to Mission Hospital and later transferred to the burn center in Winston-Salem, after suffering smoke inhalation injuries.

Grose said the fire started in the bedroom and after speaking with family members, it appears the fire started from improperly discarded smoking materials.

However, a scene investigation could not confirm a cause to the fire.

Grouse said the cause of the fire will remain undetermined until an interview with Ward is conducted.
