VIDEO/PHOTOS: Firefighters were still responding to hot spots and smoke on Monday leftover from a deadly weekend fire at the QVC distribution facility in Rocky Mount. The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office said search and rescue members located a body on the outbound side of the loading dock at the distribution facility on Sunday morning. The body was identified as 21-year-old Kevon Ricks around 4 p.m. "This is a very active and fresh investigation," said Edgecombe County manager Eric Evans during a press conference on Sunday afternoon. "[We're] not able to answer any questions at this point and time, but thank you for being here." QVC officials had previously confirmed that "everyone inside the center made it out safely." The major fire tore through the building on Saturday morning just after 2 a.m.
