An Eastern Alexander County home was destroyed by fire early Sunday.
Stony Point, Hiddenite, and Taylorsville Fire Departments responded around 2:30 am to a structure off Lentz Road. The home was engulfed in flames when the first units arrived. Alexander County Deputy Fire Marshall Mark Earle says the three residents who lived in the dwelling were able to escape without injury.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined according to Earle.
