It was a scary situation for police on Oak Island after spotting flames shooting from the roof of a house Monday night. No one was home when fire crews responded around 9:30 and quickly put out flames in the back of the home's attic.
John House had been the Oak Island Fire Chief since 2005. He says town manager Jerry Walters offered him the opportunity to resign, but House refused. Walters couldn't comment on the firing because it's a personnel matter.
