One person was killed in a fire that broke out at Inland Harbor on Carolina Beach Monday morning.
Authorities have not released the age or gender of the person who was killed.
The fire was first called in around 8:50 a.m., according to New Hanover County Dispatch.
"Unfortunately, the victim wasn't able to get out on their own and by the time we got there, the fire was well advanced," Carolina Beach Fire Chief Alan Griffin said.
Neighbors said the victim was an elderly woman in her 70s who lived on the top floor with her dog.
