Family's future in doubt

This week fire officials, state investigators and social workers will discuss the future of Mary Alice Turner. Turner is the mother of five children and grandmother of another child who died in a mobile home fire in Onslow County. Authorities will discuss the disposition of old charges in Johnston County and the possibility of new charges stemming from the July ninth fire. That fire also injured Turner's four other children. Social workers are trying to determine where those children will go when they leave the hospital. The children are improving, but two sisters remain critically ill with smoke-scarred lungs.
