Firefighters put out flames at Carolina Beach home


CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Firefighters put out flames into Thursday morning at a Carolina Beach home that was under construction.

According to New Hanover County Dispatch, the call came in just before 11:00 p.m. Wednesday.

The home on Virginia Avenue, near Canal Drive, was fully under construction, and dispatchers say they do not believe anyone was living there yet.

The fire was put out around 11:15 Wednesday night, but crews worked into the morning hours Thursday to monitor hotspots.

Crews are investigating the cause of the fire.
