WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — Winston-Salem firefighters battled an inferno at a house on Sunday morning.
Video shows crews trying to put out the blaze that engulfed the house on Patterson Avenue completely in flames at 3:15 a.m.
A person with The Habitat Homeless Veterans Transition Project, LLC said the house was one of their homes.
Aftermath video shows the smoldering remains of the house.
The Habitat Homeless Veterans Transition Project representative says that they were refurbishing the house that had been vacant for around 10 years in order to use it as a shelter for six 18-year-olds who will be timing out of foster care.
The roof of the house had just been replaced and the wiring was halfway from being completely re-done, according to The Habitat Homeless Veterans Transition Project representative.
There also was no power or gas activated in the house.
The Winston-Salem Fire Department has yet to reveal any information on what caused the fire.
