Raleigh house fire displaces four

Posted November 27, 2011

— A one-alarm house fire in Raleigh Saturday evening displaced four people, firefighters said.

A 911 caller reported the fire at 934 Ujamaa Drive around 6:10 p.m., said Capt. Justin Hicks, with the Raleigh Fire Department. When firefighters arrived, they saw flames pouring from the roof and exterior of the two-story home.

About 30 firefighters labored for about 40 minutes to bring the fire under control.

No one was injured. Hicks said about 60 percent of the home was damaged, making it uninhabitable.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
