Home, vehicle destroyed in Aberdeen fire

A home and vehicle in Aberdeen were destroyed in a fire on Wednesday afternoon. Shortly before 3 p.m., a 911 call alerted first responders to a house fire on Forest Circle, and responding units arrived to find the house fully engulfed in flames. 

Emergency crews responded in force, with units from all across Moore County and surrounding areas arriving on scene to help battle the blaze. Extra water had to be brought in through portable water tanks and filled by tanker trucks to provide additional support in extinguishing the fire. 

By the time the fire was able to be extinguished, the home and a nearby vehicle were completely destroyed, and the house was reduced to a blackened frame. 

According to authorities, no one was home at the time of the fire, and no animals were in the house. No injuries were reported.
