CRAVEN COUNTY -

Three generations of a Craven County family are displaced due to a Sunday night fire.

A neighbor called 911 after discovering the fire at the home on Frontier Lane about 6:15 p.m.

The fire started in an electrical socket in a rear bedroom of the home, an investigator said.

A grandmother, her daughter, and the daughter's children lived in the home.

No one was hurt, but a group of kittens died in the fire.

Several adult cats were able to escape the blaze.
