Shed Inspections Continue After Fatal Fire

Days after a shed fire claimed two lives in Morehead City are cracking down on living conditions in the mobile home park where the fire occurred.

Building inspectors in Morehead City have been visiting the Willis Mobile Home Park off of Bridges street since Tuesday, finding at least a dozen homes and sheds unsafe to live in.

Now organizations like the Salvation Army and Family Promise are stepping in to try to help people who may become displaced.

Many are Hispanic and we're told didn't understand what's going on because of the language barrier.

    In Mexico, they live by different standards with less government control. They're not use to the kind of saftey and health regulations that are imposed in our country. Due to this, our country is at risk of being dragged down by immigrants that live by the Mexican codes & standards. A "Shed" in the USA, might look like a one room apartment to someone from Mexico. (a family of four could live there)...The USA is a culture shock for some immigrants.
