A large plume of smoke could be seen in Kitty Hawk on Sunday afternoon as firefighters battled a blaze on Parker Street.

Video from reader Amie Mayer Sabatini showed firefighters attacking the blaze in intense midday heat.

There were no immediate reports of injuries. Several patients were being evaluated at the scene for heat-related sickness.

I am praying for these peopleLooks to be near West Lillian in Kitty Hawk.
