— It took fire crews at least an hour Saturday morning to control a fire that destroyed the home of a Raleigh police officer.

Fire crews responded to the 8200 block of Hempshire Place, near the intersection of Creedmoor and Strickland roads, at about 10:30 a.m. No people were inside the townhome when the fire started, and no injuries were reported.

The home belongs to officer A.R. Morales, who is a member of the field operations division, officials said.

It's unclear what caused the fire. No other information has been released.
