Crews respond to Vass fire

Several fire departments responded to an outbuilding fire that spread to an adjacent garage in Vass on Saturday morning.

Cypress Pointe Fire and Rescue, Crains Creek Fire and Rescue, Southern Pines Fire and Rescue, and Moore County EMS were called to the fire on White Rock Road at 3:30 a.m.

“Engine 211 arrived on the scene to find the 12′ x 20′ outbuilding fully involved with fire exposure into the near-by garage,” wrote Cypress Pointe Fire and Rescue on its Facebook page. “Delay in the detection of the fire allowed the fire to become well involved before FD arrival. Personnel from Engine 211 started fire attack with two handlines and had the majority of the fire under control in 10 minutes from their arrival. Additional Cypress Pointe units and Automatic Aid unit arrived and assisted with salvage/overhaul and ventilation. Cypress Pointe units/personnel operated on scene for just over two hours before clearing the scene.”

The blaze destroyed the outbuilding.

Cypress Pointe Fire and Rescue said Moore County Fire Marshal’s Office is handling the investigation.
