CHAPEL HILL — Three firefighters suffered minor injuries Friday afternoon at a house fire.
The fire began in the kitchen at 337 Erwin Road and spread to the attic. The house is used as a day care center. None of the occupants was hurt, but the fire took more than 2 1/2 hours to put out, Chapel Hill Fire Chief Dan Jones said.
Jones said firefighter Clay London dislocated his left shoulder when the attic stairs collapsed under him, and Capt. Norman Clark strained his back. Both were treated at UNC Hospitals.
Firefighter Donnie Morrisey was treated at the scene for dehydration.
Jones said the fire damaged 60 percent to 70 percent of the house. He did not have the name of the owner Friday evening.
