RALEIGH, North Carolina (WTVD) — A row of North Raleigh townhouses are destroyed and 19 people are displaced from a fire that erupted Friday.
The fire happened in the 9500 block of Prince George Lane, near Six Forks Road. Late Friday evening, the cause of the fire remained unknown.
“I was shaking in my shoes,” Jeannette Jones, a resident told ABC11.
Jones was heading inside from taking out the trash when she saw fire in one of the townhomes across the parking lot.
“I looked over there and I saw flames coming out, it was the inside, it wasn’t even on the outside,” Jones said.
By the time she ran inside to call 911, the fire had spread from home to home.
No residents were hurt, and it could be because of the efforts of two men.
