Avery Fire Marshal reflects on Spruce Pine Blaze PDF Print
Tuesday, 07 August 2007 05:48
Avery County Fire Marshal David Charles Vance is glad he’s not in Mitchell County Fire Marshal Eric Wiseman’s shoes.
While Wiseman was pleased with all the assistance Mitchell received battling two blazes that gutted downtown Spruce Pine, there’s still a long way to go in the investigation, Vance says. According to Vance, approximately 28 Avery County firefighters responded to the Saturday fires. The departments represented were Green Valley, Frank, Newland, Linville, Crossnore and the Ladder Company. “I felt the mutual aid was very good,” Vance said of his firefighters. While arson is suspected, nothing has been officially determined.
