Improved fire rating for Fountain Volunteer Fire Department 

A local fire district has an improved rating that could save homeowners money. The Fountain Volunteer Fire Department, along with Pitt County Emergency Management, was recently notified that the district had improved its protection rating from a seven to a six. The change comes after the NC Fire Marshal's Office evaluation. That office is part of the state Department of Insurance. The improved rating could also mean better rates on insurance policies in the Fountain fire district. Property owners can expect that change to go into effect in February.  





Fayetteville apartment building damaged in fire 

A Fayetteville apartment building was damaged in a fire on Monday. Firefighters were called to the Village at Cliffdale Apartments just after 8 p.m. Officials said fire was visible from one apartment on the third floor of a three-story building. No injuries were reported in the fire. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.  


First responders in New Bern find way to show community appreciation 

In the middle of a pandemic, with events and activities continuing to get canceled, some first responders here in the East are finding ways to say thank-you to their community. First responders in New Bern took time out of their evenings Monday to show their community they appreciate them. National Night Out was cancelled due to COVID-19, so the New Bern Police Department figured out a way to celebrate, all while staying safe. Police cars, a fire truck, and other law enforcement vehicles kept the tradition of National Night Out alive by creating a Parade of Lights. Spectators stood outside their homes to wave and smile as the cars drove by. Sergeant Brice said the main goal of the Parade of Lights is to show the community that they are partners and thank them for supporting law enforcement and first responders.
