Haven't found any news coverage (yet) of Saturday's major house fire at 7112 Starchase Lane in Fuquay-Varina, where heavy fire conditions were battled by crews from Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Fairview, and Northwest Harnett. What other fire departments were involved? Deluge operations were utilized, as well as tankers for water supply. The two-story, wood-frame residence with 2,304 square-feet is shown below. Dispatched at 3:56 p.m., the fire was controlled by 6:00 p.m. Readers, please add additional details. Updated at lunch with reader photos, taken of the wife of a Fuquay-Varina Fire Department. She arrived about 45 minutes into the incident. Click to enlarge:

My family and I have stared at these pictures of our house for what seems like hours; they are indeed worth more than a thousand words. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of the firefighters and EMS workers who responded. We never imagined that the day would come when we would have to make a 911 call, much less one like this. My daughters and I are planning to visit each individual fire department to personally thank the selfless, skilled, and courageous individuals who came to our aid on Saturday. We could not have asked for more. One firefighter (who I wish I could identify) gave my 7 year-old daughter a pink stuffed bear that she has slept with every night since the fire. I am humbled—absolutely humbled—by the gentleness and reverence that is embedded in the strength of a firefighter. May God bless each of you. You are truly our heroes.
