That's a reader photo from the Carteret County News-Times, as found by FireNews. Don't see that terribly often around here. Nine fire departments responded to the fire in the Core Creek community, including a haz-mat unit from Otway. Read the Times article or the FireNews story.

Why are we linking to both versions of the same story? That's easy. Each site has its own comments section. Just linking to one means you might miss interesting conversation on the other. (And not everyone thinks to click through from FireNews to the originating story site.)

And while we're on the subject, note that FireNews has upgraded their commenting technology. It's easier to leave comments across the site. There's also a new interface being tested on the Headlines stories, to the upper-right. Try it out!
