WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Firebelly Lounge employee helped save a man after a fire sparked in the kitchen of his apartment while he was sleeping.

It happened just after 1:30 a.m. on North Front Street, close to Firebelly Lounge.

Wilmington fire crews received the call from an alarm company after the smoke detector went of inside an apartment.

A Firebelly Lounge employee told crews he saw smoke coming from the balcony of a nearby apartment. The employee then kicked open the door, and found the occupant sleeping in his room. The employee helped the occupant out of the apartment before crews arrived.

After investigating the fire, firefighters determined that it was likely started by an unattended pan on the kitchen stove.

You don’t have an open pit anymore. You don’t even have Texas B.B.Q. anymore.

Doesn’t sound like you should be critiquing how Firebelly’s is running their (sucessful) business.

What’s going on down there??? We NEVER had that problem when that place was Texas B.B.Q.! And we had an open pit!

the fire wasn’t at Firebelly, it was at a nearby apartment…at least according to the article, which you apparently didn’t read.

Very nice job on the English language and reading comprehension. As pointed out by other people commenting, if you read the story, a Firebelly employee saved a man’s life that fell asleep while cooking in his own apartment. The story had nothing to do with Firebelly. Maybe that’s why you are no longer in business. Way to go.

Firebelly is kind of awesome. This sleeping occupant shouldn’t cook anymore and go eat there instead.

That employee is a Boy Scout in Troop 19 and a Previous member of the Wilmington Fire Department Explorer Youth Program. Both of which build great character and teach the importance of helping others.
