NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Fire crews worked together early Tuesday morning to knock out flames outside the Lowes Foods store in the 2300 block of North College Road.

Several fire units worked to get the fire under control.

According to New Hanover County Deputy Fire Marshal Tom Sosebee, CSI took samples from the scene and detectives will interview a few people.

When WECT arrived on the scene, it appeared some pallets caught fire on the east side of the building, and there was no damage to the store.

Sosebee said some people were inside the building when the fire started, but no one was hurt by the burning pallets.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
