Two lifeguards hurt in Outer Banks house fire

The home, which housed Nags Head lifeguards, was a total loss. Two lifeguards were treated for smoke inhalation.

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. — Two people had to be treated for smoke inhalation after a house fire in Kill Devil Hills early Friday morning.

The Kill Devil Hills Fire Department said the fire broke out on the deck of a home around 1 a.m., in the 200 block of North Memorial Boulevard. That's not far from the Wright Brothers Memorial and the Town of Nags Head said the home houses lifeguards.

Officials said teams from Colington and Kitty Hawk Fire Departments helped put it out.

Everyone was able to get out of the burning home, but two lifeguards who lived in the house suffered smoke inhalation. The fire department said there was "extensive damage" to the house, and the Town of Nags Head said it was a total loss.

A GoFundMe has been created to help assist the displaced lifeguards.

Fire Marshal John Risoldi Sr. is still investigating the cause of the fire.
