Fire Leaves Several People Homeless

Three people, including two Marines, are without a home after a fire ripped through their jacksonville duplex late Sunday night.

Four volunteer fire departments in Onslow County responded to the blaze in the hunters creek subdivision. The home at 206 Live Oak Court is a total loss.

Authorities have determined the cause of the fire was a malfunctioning dishwasher.

Neighbors say it took hours to control the fire, that jumped to a neighboring unit, and also damaged the duplex next door.

    As on of the people displaced by this fire, i would like to thank the PGVFD. They had a faster react time than I thought being that they have to leave there homes and get dressed. They were there in roughly 12 min. of my call to 911. They worked very hard to make sure they did not have to return once again. They were there for 4 hours insuring that no heat or flames were left unturned as well as locating the cause of the fire. They did a good job....in my opinion.

    Navy Relief is a loan they have to pay back all of it by a certain time...& items were all a total loss.

    Only thing about this article incorrect is the time it took to control. It only took 20 min to have the fire under control to include the adjacent structure. Also nice to know that the fire was stopped before entering the second half of the duplex. The adjacent structure also only had outside damage nothing inside except the hole made in the ceiling to stop it in the attic. No damage to the owners personal belongings. The fire departments being all volunteer should be commended on thier quick actions.

    Seems like an opportuntiy for Navy Relief to step in and help out...and in the form of a grant, NOT a loan! They need to start distributing some of that money they they have stached in poor investments before they lose tens of millions more!
