Fire Tears Through Topsail Beach Homes

Two homes worth over a million dollars each were destroyed after a fire tore through them on North Topsail Beach.

Authorities say it happened along Ocean View Lane in the Ocean Sound Village neighborhood around 2 AM.

No one was injured, but officials say it was a tough fire to put out due to high winds.

Officials are searching for a cause.

    When it comes to our property, what do we expect in case of loss (hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, fire, etc.)? The disaster itself is news. What happens after the dust settles is the story: the aftermath shock. Here is something the public should know. With a little curiosity, you the insurance policyholder can mitigate that shock. You need to be informed of access to your basic rights and vital information--even footing--equality. The internet reaches far more people than anyone would have ever imagined, though difficult to gather those willing to pause, to inspect, to further...to think on their own. And yet, much is available gratis! It just takes looking: www.disasterprepared.net/info.html

    Job well done to the fire departments involved. Keeping it to two homes is quite a feat. High winds and fire don't mix well together, and your efforts kept the damage from being worse. Excellent job and glad to hear that you all, and the families, were not injured in the process. Job well done!
