— Last rites came to an abrupt halt Thursday afternoon when fire broke out in a Dunn funeral home.

The staff at the home was just finishing a funeral service when the fire began in an office on the second floor. Flames spread quickly to viewing rooms in the 90-year-old building.

Mourners and several caskets were quickly brought out of the building.

There were no injuries and investigators say they don't know what caused the blaze.
