Two early morning fires in Winnabow Sunday are being called suspicious. Two mobile homes were burned. One was only used as a storage unit, but the other was a new home. It was destroyed just before a family planned move in. The call came from the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office around 10 o'clock Sunday morning. It was the call that changed the Burns family's life. “My brother in law was woken up early this morning rudely by the Sheriff’s Department saying his house had burnt. Of course we rushed over here,” said Brenda Wright, the victim’s sister. When they arrived at 7311 Lee Buck Road in Winnabow, they couldn't believe what they saw. A new mobile home containing all of Linda and Scott Burns' possessions had been destroyed. The Burns' planned on moving in to their new home next month. “I used to be a volunteer fireman, so I knew what to expect when I got here. It didn't help,” Scott Burns said. It wasn't the only mobile home to catch fire early Sunday morning. A trailer storage unit, only a stones throw away from the Burns's home, was also destroyed. The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office is calling both of these fires suspicious. The Burns' spent all day Sunday sifting through the ashes, trying to salvage whatever they could. The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the cause of the fire. If you have any information, please call 910-253-2777. The Faith International Christian Center is collecting donations for the Burns family. If you would like to contribute, their address is P.O. Box 211, Bolivia, North Carolina, 28422.
