SURF CITY, N.C. (WECT) - Crews battled a fire Tuesday morning at the old Blizzard’s Motel in Surf City.

The Surf City Fire Department responded to the building located at 213 N. Shore Dr. shortly before 6 a.m.

Units from the Town of Surf City, Pender EMS & Fire Department, North Topsail Beach Fire Department, and Topsail Beach Fire Department were on the scene. The fire was declared under control at approximately 9:30 a.m.

“We are grateful that the quick response led to minimal spread of the fire and that the impact was mostly contained to the structure,” said Surf City FD Chief Wilson in a news release.

No injuries were reported due to the fire.

Officials said Tuesday afternoon that businesses located on Goldsboro and Topsail Dr. were closed after powerlines were damaged.

Surf City police say they have made an arrest for trespassing on the property “and have an individual in custody which remains under investigation at this time.”
