WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Investigators believe an electrical arc caused a home to catch fire Saturday night.

The fire broke out around 9:00 p.m. at a home located in the Wilmington Hillcrest Community. Two women were inside the home, but safely escaped.

Investigators say the fire started in an outlet where a cell phone charger was plugged into.

In the meantime, W.F.D. investigators are still trying to figure out how a house caught fire on Rose Avenue Christmas Day.
