— Firefighters said a malfunctioning gas grill caused a two-alarm fire at a Raleigh home on Tuesday.

Authorities said the fire broke out around 8:15 p.m. at 1301 Wagram Court. Flames had engulfed the deck and were reaching up to the attic when firefighters arrived.

One firefighter suffered a dislocated shoulder while pulling the fire hose before entering the house, authorities said. There were no other injuries. 

About half of the house was damaged.
