WBOC to Hold Accomack Arsons Special on Wednesday

Updated:

ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. - WBOC wants to inform our viewers about news regarding our "Accomack County Arsons" special.

For days we have talked about holding a live, "Town Hall" special from the Onancock Volunteer Fire Department, and we've been inviting the public to be with us.  However, earlier Tuesday, WBOC was informed by Accomack County Emergency Services Director Jeff Terwilliger that he does not see the value of us holding a town hall event in their county.

WBOC had invited a panel of guests to the Onancock fire hall including Virginia State Police, Accomack county agencies, elected officials and the Virginia Governor's office. All of them declined to participate. 

Because of that lack of participation, we've been informed we cannot use the fire hall. We understand this is an ongoing investigation. Our hope was to raise public awareness, and provide answers to your questions regarding this incredible string of arsons. The people who can answer those questions are not talking.

In its place Wednesday night, WBOC will dedicate our entire 7 p.m. broadcast to the Accomack Arson fires.  The WBOC news team has spent significant time producing in-depth reports that we still want you to see.

We want to apologize, because we wanted you to be with us at this town hall event.   But we still invite you to watch us Wednesday night at 7 p.m., as we examine the Accomack County arsons.
