In recently released 911 calls from a house fire Thursday night, a caller says there was 'screaming' from a burning Barnardsville home connected to the Thomas Bryson murder investigation.

On Saturday there is no word on if anyone was inside the home or injured.

Flames broke out late Thursday night. At that time, all three of the people accused of harboring Phillip Stroupe II were already in jail.

Warrants say that authorities searched the home before it burned down.

The house is owned by Jennifer Hawkins, who along with her boyfriend Frederick Badgero Jr. and her nephew Larry Jay Hawkins II, is accused of harboring Phillip Stroupe II, and being an accessory after the fact to Thomas Bryson's murder.

Three 911 calls came in from neighbors the night the house burned. One caller reported hearing "people over there screaming."



One reported the area being "lit up" by the fire, which fully engulfed the home and burned it nearly to ashes, leaving only the frame of the home partially intact.

There is no word on what caused the fire.

The Buncombe Arson Task Force is investigating.
