BAYBORO – A car fire behind the Courthouse in Bayboro rapidly escalated Monday afternoon while firefighters – who arrived promptly from Triangle Volunteer Fire Department – struggled to activate a pumper and attached hoses.


First reported at 12:10 pm, flames and a plume of billowing black smoke grew worse and quickly threatened a nearby car and overhead power lines.

At approximately 12:24 pm, emergency responders were able to thoroughly douse the fire with a powerful stream of water supplied by a thick fire hose. The car was not occupied, and no injuries were reported.
