SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) — An early morning fire burns a Surf City Motel to the ground.
Tiffany’s Motel went up in flames around 3:00 a.m. Pender County dispatchers confirm receiving the first emergency call at 3:12 a.m.
Firefighters say the 3-alarm fire was tough to battle due to strong winds. Flames quickly spread to nearby homes destorying one and badly burning another.
Backup support from Sneads Ferry and Turkey Creek fire crews helped knock down the flames, but firefighters are still on scene keeping an eye on hot spots.
