    So, so, sad. I was one of the ones who called 911 & watched the firefighters battle the blaze- unfortunately, the fire spread so quickly that there wasn't much they could do for it. I took my kids by the house after school to further drive home the point that if there is ever a fire to GET OUT. Leave everything behind and just GET OUT. I'm still in shock over how quickly the fire tore through the house. I'm so thankful that no one was hurt.

    WRAL- Are there any updates as to what caused the fire?
