NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Firefighters had to truck in water to battle a fire at a home under renovation this morning in Porters Neck.
The fire started around 8 a.m. in the 8700 block of Bald Eagle Lane on the Intracoastal Waterway. Firefighters say it was a summer home for a family in Greenville, and no one was there when the fire started.
New Hanover County Fire Rescue says the nearest hydrant is about a mile away. Firefighters say they’ve been asking for more than a year to install more hydrants.
Investigators say they will likely be on scene most of the day trying to figure out how the fire started.
