Firefighter Injured In Early Morning Fire Thursday

Just after 1:30, Thursday morning rescue crews responded to the 4300 block of Pyles Ford Road Road in Wilmington for reports of a structure fire.

While en route crews learned that a detached garage fire, with a vehicle inside, was fully involved and threatening a home.
