— A fire damaged a home and several cars in southwestern Durham early Sunday, fire officials said.

The fire broke out in the house at 1311 Cobblestone Place around 3:15 a.m. The blaze spread to the roof before firefighters contained it, said Lebanon Volunteer Fire Department Chief Howard Sykes.

Two people were in the house when the fire started, but they managed to escape uninjured.

Sykes said the fire caused extensive damage to one side of the house, as well as several cars parked in a garage.
