Pleasure Island Disaster Relief

A condo fire Monday morning January 8th, took the life of a Carolina Beach resident. Carolina Beach Fire Chief Alan Griffin said fire fighters were dispatched shortly before 9am to the Inland Harbor Condominiums at 500 Saint Joseph Street. Griffin said the fire started in one unit and spread to adjacent units. Crews contained the fire within those three units, but eight other units experienced smoke and water damage. There are 18 units overall in the building. In addition to the Carolina Beach Fire Department, crews from the Kure Beach, Wilmington, New Hanover County and Leland departments also responded.
Thank God we have a team that has dealt with this kind of tragedy before as we are ready. We also want to thank the Red Cross for coming to our rescue in our time of need.
