A home was destroyed by fire Tuesday evening in Alexander County.
Alexander County Fire Marshall Mark Earle says around 11:30pm, units from Sugar Loaf, Taylorsville and Vashti were dispatched to a residence on Jolly Cemetery Road north of Taylorsville.
The dwelling was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.
Earle says at least two people lived at the location.
The cause of the blaze is yet to be determined.
Occupants are being assisted by the local Red Cross.
