FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Two men were displaced and one was injured in a Friday morning house fire in Fayetteville, according to the Fayetteville Fire/Emergency Management Department.

Fire crews responded to the scene in the 6800 block of Buttermere Drive in the Cliffdale West area around 4:30 a.m. Upon arrival, firefighters reported fire showing from the roof of the home.

While attempting to fight the fire, water supply issues hampered the firefighting operations, officials said. An additional tanker from Stoney Point Fire Department had to be requested in order to battle the blaze.

The fire had been extinguished by 6:45 a.m.

One of the men had to be treated for smoke inhalation. His condition is not known.

At least 50 percent of the home was damaged in the fire, but that could go up.

The Red Cross is assisting the two people who were displaced.

Authorities said an investigation into the fire will begin after daylight.
