CARRBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — One person suffered a minor injury and 17 people were displaced when a fire caused major damage to an apartment building in Carrboro Saturday night, officials said.

The blaze was reported just after 8:05 p.m. at the Rock Creek Apartments at 100 Rock Haven Road, which is just off Smith Level Road just south of Culbreth Road, according to Carrboro Fire Capt. Will Potter.

The fire spread to two stories and damaged four apartment units, Potter said. Four other units were damaged by smoke and water used to put out the fire, he added.

It took fire crews about 40 minutes just to get the blaze under control, officials said Sunday.

Late Saturday night, crews were still at the scene making sure there were no remaining “hot spots, according to Potter.

The Red Cross is responding to the scene to help those who were displaced, he said.

Sunday afternoon, fire officials said the fire caused damages estimated at $500,000.

Three fire units from Carrboro and Chapel Hill along with two from north Chatham County responded to the fire.
