Flames burn home near I-540
RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Firefighters were battling a massive blaze Sunday morning at a residence in the 2600 block of Jasper Lane, near Carpenter Pond Road, just north of Interstate-540.
Crews arrived at the scene of the two story home just after 5 a.m., brought the fire under control in 45 minutes, and were on the scene until about 10:40 a.m.
Officials said flames were shooting through the roof and burned the majority of the home.
The fire is said to have started in the rear of the structure.
Four residents escaped safely after being awakened by a smoke detector.
The cause of the fire remained unknown Sunday, as the investigation continued.
