Fire Damages Fayetteville Funeral Home

Posted May 5, 2000 7:00 a.m. EDT

— Flames damaged a Fayetteville funeral home on Saturday.

Firefighters were called out to Wiseman's Mortuary around 2:30 p.m.

The fire is out, but the flames tore through the back corner of the funeral home. The fire forced some last-minute changes for one funeral planned there on Saturday.

"We came to go to a funeral today. We got here and there was a fire, so we had to go to Peace Memorial Church for the funeral today," says mourner Cynthia Pacheco.

There is no word on the cause of the fire, but investigators believe it was accidental. -->
