Robbins woman dies in crash

A body was found after a fire on Thanksgiving Day. Firefighters were dispatched to a residence on Crabtree Road, outside of Robbins, around 10:30 a.m.

Multiple fire departments were paged to the outside fire. The fire spread to several structures on the property, including the residence. North Carolina Forest Service also responded to help battle the blaze. Moore County Sheriff’s Department was also called to the scene.

“A body was located after the fire was extinguished,” said Chief Deputy Richard Maness with the Moore County Sheriff’s Department to Sandhills Sentinel in a phone call. “We do not have a positive ID at this time. Detectives responded to the scene, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation, although we do not believe it was arson. Preliminary investigation is pointing to an accidental fire as the result of a burn barrel as the point of origin, but the fire remains under investigation.”

This was one of three fires that firefighters from Robbins, Carthage, High Falls and Westmoore battled over a 16-hour-period on Thanksgiving Day.

Responding to the fire were Robbins Fire & Rescue, Carthage Fire & Rescue, High Falls Fire & Rescue, Westmoore Fire & Rescue, North Carolina Forest Service, Moore County Public Safety, Moore County EMS, and Moore County Sheriff’s Department.

This is a developing story and will updated as more information becomes available.
