A downtown Raleigh fire caused severe damage to homes recently. Although the cause of the fire is not yet known, it started in a one-story duplex on Blount Street and quickly spread to a neighboring home.
The two-alarm fire required the skill of over 50 firefighters who worked for over an hour to control the flames. According to WRAL, the fire caused the roof to collapse and will most likely be a total loss. The adjacent homes were damaged to the point where they are no longer habitable.
No injuries were caused by the fire; however four people are now homeless because of the fire damage. Insurance companies typically provide compensation for living expenses, whether it be a hotel room or a home or apartment as a short-term rental while repairs are made.
