07/21/13 148 W, 1 I - + 3 - 1 Way Down East House Fire

This photo by Dylan Ray was posted in this Carteret News-Times story yesterday. That's a major house fire way down east in the community of Straits. The address was 945 Crow Hill Road, which Google says is a Beaufort (!) street address. The two-story house was four-years old. The fire was reported about 2:00 p.m. and required a tanker shuttle, due to the lack of hydrants in the area. Looks like at least one aerial stream was operated. Morehead City's mobile ambulance bus also responded, as both firefighters and bystanders required medical attention due to heat-related problems. (Yesterday's heat index at that time was about 94 degrees, says one site found via Google.) Responding fire departments (and approximate road distances) were Otway (4.9), Harkers Island (4.8), Marshallberg (6.0), South River-Merrimon (24.5), Davis (16), North River (11.2), Beaufort (14.4), and Morehead City (20.7, from Station 2, where the MAB is housed).
