Two Cabins Destroyed in a Fire-Ravaged Campground

Share this article

A massive fire destroyed two cabins and damaged several others in a Lake James (North Carolina) campground Wednesday afternoon.

As per a report, fire crews from several departments responded to prevent the fire from spreading to surrounding homes.

The campground hosts a combination of vacation homes and year-round residents,  which means that it’s likely that someone would have been at home at the time, and a greater chance that someone could have been injured.

In dry, hot conditions, a fast-moving fire swept across the Black Bear campground, engulfing two cabins and causing damage to others nearby.

Alice Stecker, a resident living near the scene, claims she witnessed the flames and smoke take the homes in minutes.

“I heard a big bang. And the smoke just kept coming and coming and coming,” she said.

Emergency crews rushed to stop the spread and save whatever they could.

On Thursday, the owners went out to assess the damages. However, there was nothing left. A lifetime of hard work and memories are all gone.

The neighbors are grateful for the work of the local firefighters to limit the destruction to other homes in the hundred and thirty lot park.
