Raleigh townhome goes up in flames for 2nd time in less than a week

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - At least 10 units with 40 first responders returned to Hamlet Green Drive for the second time in less than a week to put out a fire at a townhome.

Raleigh Fire Department Division Chief Ian Griffin tells CBS 17 that Friday's four-alarm fire broke out around 12:30 a.m.

By the time firefighters arrived, Griffin said the home was fully engulfed. Last weekend, several of the same firefighters put out a blaze at the same townhome unit.


The unit was occupied then, but fire investigators quickly deemed it unlivable. The North Raleigh home was not occupied at the time of Friday's fire.

Firefighters say the cause of Friday's blaze remains undetermined, since firefighters cannot go inside the building which has been declared structurally unsound.

The investigation is ongoing. This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
