Fayetteville, N.C. — A house fire that killed a Fayetteville woman and her two sons early Wednesday was caused by an electrical problem, authorities said Thursday.
Ashley Nicole Bullock, 25, and sons Trevon, 6, and Andrew, 5, were trapped in a bedroom in their Cliffdale Road home and died.
It took nine units from the Fayetteville Fire Department about 45 minutes to bring the fire under control after it broke through the single-story home's roof.
Juwann Bullock was at work when the fire started and arrived home to find firefighters still working to put out the blaze. He told investigators that the home had working smoke detectors, but authorities said their investigation couldn't confirm that.
