— Investigators in Wilson are trying to figure out what started an overnight fire that killed a man.

Ramon Martinez, 20, died in a home at the Toisnot mobile home park. A second man was able to escape.

Firefighters say the old home burned very quickly. They arrived within three minutes of the 911 call to find the home covered in flames. It did not have a smoke detector.

Fire crews say they do not suspect foul play, but the investigation is still open.
