DURHAM, N.C. — A fire that broke out late Thursday caused heavy damage to a Durham area home, authorities reported.
Four adults and three children were in a one-story home at 414 Clayton Road when the fire erupted shortly before 10 p.m., but they escaped unharmed. However, a dog did not survive.
Chris Iannuzzi, deputy chief for Durham Fire Department, said crews remained at the home for more than three hours. Twenty-eight firefighters from three departments responded.
The house had heavy fire and smoke damage in two bedrooms and a hall, and smoke and water damage throughout, Iannuzzi said. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
