12/07/11 108 W, 1 I - + 3 - 2 Tuesday's Big Blaze in Holden Beach

Found this on Firehouse.com, from the Wilmington Star-News. Explosions on Holden Beach shortly before 5 a.m. Tuesday. Unoccupied homes times two ablaze on Starfish Drive. Flames shooting 20 feet over the tops of the burning roofs. Daylight brought the damage report. Fire started at 115 Starfish Drive and spread to 113 Starfish Drive. Also destroyed were two boats on trailers in a vacant lot, and two others damaged. Tri-Beach FD, Supply FD, Civietown FD, and Grissettown-Longwood FD responded. Read the entire story, which also includes a video clip. See also this News 14 story, which has morning-after footage.

Mike, if I am not mistaken Tri-Beach has a substation on the island and it is actually on the corner of Starfish Dr and Ocean Blvd. I wonder how the station faired and if there was any damage, The streets on the island are only about 1/4 mile long so it could not have been far from the building.
