Fire destroys Silver Lake Rd. home Saturday

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Firefighters say a home is a “complete loss” after a fire Saturday night in Wilmington.

It happened at a home at 406 Silver Lake Rd. near Monkey Junction.

Crews were able to quickly contain the fire in less than 15 minutes, and the fire was completely out in less than half an hour.

“We went into a defensive mode, put water on it from the outside, had a report that nobody was inside from the residents themselves, so we went ahead and started fire fighting operations and got it under control pretty fast,” Capt. Colin Simpson of the Wilmington Fire Department said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
