• Benefit ride Sunday for 13-year-old killed in Richmond Co. fire


    RICHMOND COUNTY, N.C. - Family and friends will remember a 13-year-old who died in a Richmond County house fire by riding for him on Sunday.

    Garon Benson was killed a week ago Sunday.

    Fire crews said by the time they got to the house on Safie Second Street that it was engulfed by flames.

    Neighbors said Garon's mother ran back inside the burning house to try and save him, but couldn't.

    She was in critical condition earlier this week.

    The benefit ride starts at 2 p.m. Sunday. Bikers will meet at the Southern Road House in Rockingham, and the money that is raised will go to Garon's family.
