RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A Raleigh home was heavily damaged by a fire Saturday afternoon.
The incident was reported around 5:15 p.m. at a two-story home in the 1600 block of Brownairs Lane, which is in a neighborhood off South New Hope Road in southeast Raleigh.
Raleigh fire officials said a woman was at home when the fire broke out. She managed to escape with no injuries, but a dog was unresponsive when it was brought out of the home.
Firefighters gave the dog oxygen and the dog later was recovering, officials said.
About 35 firefighters responded to the blaze, which damaged half the home, according to a Raleigh Fire Department report.
After the fire, several neighbors were gathered outside the home and along the street.
The burned home was still standing but had significant damage to both levels, including a garage. Most of the fire damage was concentrated at the front of the house, fire officials later said.
No people were injured.
Investigators later said the fire was accidental but did not explain how it happened.
