— A Raleigh couple faces a major repair bill. Their Raleigh home went up in flames overnight, causing extensive damage.

Investigators said that an electrical problem on the ground floor caused the fire. The blaze quickly spread to the attic.

The house, on Buck Jones Road in West Raleigh, now needs about $75,000 in reconstruction work.

There was no word of injuries.
