Officials searching for homeowner after fire in NC
WAKE COUNTY, N.C. — Fire officials are trying to determine if a man and his dog were in their Wake County home when a fire broke out early Monday morning, WTVD reported.
The blaze started around 2:45 a.m. at a home on Truelove Drive off Bells Lake Road in Apex.
Fairview Chief David Price tells WTVD that they are still trying to locate the man and his dog, and said his vehicle is still at the home.
It took fire crews 40 minutes to get the flames under control. A firefighter was taken to the hospital due to heat-related injuries but is expected to be okay. The roof of the home collapsed, making it difficult for fire crews to see the extent of the damage.
