Firefighter Responds To His Own Home In Flames

Firefighters are known to help others put out the flames, but for one Volunteer Firefighter here in the east, a fire Tuesday afternoon was at his own home.

Officials say an electrical fire caused it.

Robersonville Voluntary Firefighter, Christopher Webb says he was inside the firehouse when he received a call around 3pm Tuesday afternoon about a fire inside the H&W Mobile Home Park.

When he pulled up to the fire, his own home was engulfed in flames.

Webb says he lost everything in the blaze, except the support from his fellow fire-rescue members.

Webb says he did not have insurance on his home and will be spending the nights inside the fire house until he can get back on his feet.

    Out of all the tragedy this may have brought, the one good thing is you will know how much you are loved and appreciated by your friends, family and community. Martin County really sticks together during times like these. I will be praying for you Chris.

    Shouldn't it read In Flames instead of On Flames?

    I am so sorry for your loss. Keep your head up and remember there is light at the end of the tunnel. I too, lost everything to a house fire once, but things will get better with time.
