shortly after 12:30 Thursday afternoon. Emergency
vehicles and fire trucks from multiple departments
responded, Details, including word of any injuries,
are not yet available.

Fairfield Harbour, still reeling from devastation
wrought by Hurricane Florence, is an upscale
residential community off Broad Creek Road
in Craven County.


Over the past two months, a large number of
construction and rehabilitation crews have been
hard at work. Whether an accident or mistake
related to construction work caused the explosion
has not yet been determined.

Tremors from the explosion were felt more than a
mile away from the main entrance. Falon, a clerk
at Fairfield Fuel Market, said she could feel the
floor shake at the popular convenience store.
