ONLY ON 3: Fireworks erupt among Bladen Co. Commissioners, audience

35

BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Tempers flared at tonight’s Bladen County Commissioners’ meeting after commissioner Charles Peterson showed his disapproval of the board’s no-vote in naming the emergency services building after former county Deputy Fire Marshall John Hall.

Hall died last November from a heart issue after getting sick while responding to a fire call.

Commissioner Delilah Blanks said she was not familiar with Hall and wanted to consider other names for the building.

The measure failed in a 5-4 vote.
