Early morning Grandy house fire results in heavy damage

Fire units from the Lower Currituck Volunteer Fire Department were dispatched to the 100 block of Dowdys Bay Road in the Grandy area of Currituck County at 12:54 a.m. February 5.

The first arriving Fire-EMS unit reported a fully involved residential structure fire. Currituck Fire-EMS reports that there was some extension of the fire to an adjoined residential structure and the main building was heavily damaged.

Four occupants, who were at home when the fire started, were able to get out on their own prior to emergency personnel arriving on scene. The occupants have been displaced by the fire and are being assisted by the American Red Cross. It was reported that there were no injuries.

The fire was brought under control in just under two hours. According to Currituck Fire-EMS, firefighting efforts were hampered by all water needing to be shuttled to the scene due to lack of a nearby fire hydrant.

The Lower Currituck VFD was assisted by Currituck Fire-EMS, Crawford Township VFD, Moyock VFD, Southern Shores VFD, Kitty Hawk Fire Department and the Currituck County Sheriff’s Department.

The fire is under investigation by the Currituck County Sheriff’s Department.
