CARY, N.C. (WNCN) – A woman died in a Cary house fire overnight and two firefighters were injured, according to officials.
Firefighters responded to the house fire call around 11 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of Dunhagan Place.
Officials said Esther May Hilliard Reak, 93, was in the house when the fire started, and later died.
Additionally, two firefighters had minor injuries and were taken to the hospital, officials said.
CBS 17’s Joseph Holloway spoke to a neighbor, Mike Tove, who lives next door, who said Reak lived in the house for several years.
“She was always really nice, and we would be out working in the gardens and said ‘hello’,” Tove said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
