Posted July 29, 2008

— Firefighters said a two-alarm blaze at an apartment complex on Shanda Drive in north Raleigh made 16 units uninhabitable Tuesday afternoon.

Flames and smoke could be seen coming through the roof of one building when the first apparatus arrived shortly before 3 p.m.

No one was injured in the fire, which about 60 firefighters took a half-hour to put out, fire Lt. Tim Wilson said.

Wilson said the fire began accidentally.

Officials called the Red Cross to help displaced residents.

    I used to live over there. I am glad no one was hurt. I hope these folks can get their lives back to semi-normal soon. Pray for these families!
