Famous UFO Home in Outer Banks Burns Down

Beloved roadside tourist attraction Frisco UFO home, catches fire according to a Fox 8 article which reports, 


“Was it a bit of paranormal activity, or was something earthly to blame? Either way, this is one event fans might need the “Men in Black” short-term memory zapper for. 


The Frisco UFO “spaceship” house, a beloved roadside tourist attraction in the Outer Banks town, went up in flames on Wednesday night. The Frisco Fire Department shared photos of the damage on Thursday morning.”


The call to the fire department came after 10 p.m., and it took them several hours to extinguish the fire according to a The News & Observer article. They say,


““Sad to report, Frisco lost a piece of history last night,” the department wrote Oct. 20. “The ‘Spaceship’ is no more.” 


The call came shortly after 10 p.m. and it took “several hours” to extinguish the blaze, the Island Free Press reports. A cause has not been reported, but a 2017 McClatchy News story reported the home was cited for not meeting “building codes or fire codes.”


The Frisco Fire Department posted pictures of the aftermath on their Facebook page.
