Ocracoke Volunteer Firefighters quick work saves the day.
It really does take a village, so when Pirate’s Chest Gift Shop reported a fire, the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department sprang into action. The damage to the building was significant but it could have been much worse as the Ocracoke Current reports.

“This is why Ocracoke loves the women and men of the volunteer fire department.
The 9-1-1 call went out at 1:20pm on Wednesday, November 29th: Pirate’s Chest gift shop was on fire! Smoke and flames from the attic and roof of the building greeted the volunteer firefighters and community members who answered the call.”
