Investigators are looking into the possibility that a Thursday morning fire on Watts Street east of Morganton may have been set intentionally by someone living in the home. Firefighters from three different departments arrived to find flames pouring from a bedroom window. The Drexel police chief said he had to yell at the arguing couple inside the home to come out. Now, the man and woman are blaming each other for starting the blaze. Josh Silvers' girlfriend was taken to the hospital with injuries, but he said she set the home on fire during an argument. "Apparently, I've, um, had a better sex life than Gene Simmons and Magic Johnson combined," he said. Investigators are trying to figure out who started the fire.
