Investigators Searching for Cause of Massive Fire in Mooresville

MOORESVILLE, N.C. –  Investigators are still searching for answers after a massive fire destroyed several homes in Mooresville.

Shocking video shows the homes engulfed in flames. All were under construction when the fire broke out late Tuesday night.

“My son came and woke us up and said that the houses were on fire. We came out and you could hear the fire before you saw it,” one neighbor said.

In all, investigators say seven homes caught fire, six were destroyed.

“You could feel it on your face, how hot it was,” a neighbor says. “I had to put my hand over my face because it was so hot and we were not that close.”

Investigators say all of the homes were at the Reserve at Ashlyn Creek off Kistler Farm Road.

State and local investigators spent the day on the scene. They haven’t released a cause.
