. KURE RESIDENTS PLAN FIRE HOUSE A modern fire department com plete with a truck, pressure water mains and alarm system for Kure Beach was under discussion at a recent meeting sponsored by the Kure Progressive association held in the Beach Memorial chapel. Acting on previous recommenda tion* of Wilmington’s fire chief, J. Ludie Croom, the beach com munity, it was revealed, has laid several thousand yards of water f ~ "~V mains, and currently, workmen are installing fire hydrants. Land for a fire station has been donated by Lawrence Kure, and construction of a building will begin at an early date, the association was told by L. E. Wienberg, its chairman. Present at the meeting, Chief Croom told beach residents that there was a possibility that a small Wilmington city fire truck, complete with pressure pump and other equipment, might be made available for sale to the association or community. The association also heard a re port on progress of the county’s survey of drainage possibilities to restore several hundred acres of land along the beach. The survey has been undertaken by the Con solidated health board, and a final report is considered likely within the next month, the group was told.
