Multiple fire crews in North Carolina responded to an oceanfront house fire overnight, that left several parked vehicles and other nearby homes damaged. The Kill Devil Hills Fire Department said it went to the 2000 block of South Virginia Dare Trail Saturday, June 20, just before 4 a.m. after getting a call about flames seen at the front of the house. According to a spokesperson, it was a 16-bedroom house and there were 42 people in it when the fire broke out. They had to evacuate. After the first report came in, the fire alarm assignment got upgraded to a second alarm. This happened as a result of the heavy flames that were showing when the first crew arrived. The spokesperson said there were four additional homes that also got damaged and the residents there had to relocate.
