Northchase Fire

Fire fighters in the northern part of New Hanover County spent several hours this morning battling a blaze near North Chase. Emergency workers responded to the North Chase Medical Center off of North College road about 5 a-m . Early reports indicate that the building had been broken into, and what's left of the building is being treated as a crime scene; however, investigators are not sure if that breaking and entering is behind the cause of the fire. The flames also spread to the neighboring Dominoes pizza, but did not inflict heavy damage. The restaurant could re-open after being inspected by the county health department later today.
