Fire heavily damages Raleigh home

From staff reportsSeptember 14, 2013 

— Investigators are looking into the cause of a fire that heavily damaged an East Raleigh home Saturday morning.

Authorities received a 911 call at 12:59 a.m. that a home at 517 Hanska Way was on fire. By the time, firefighters arrived, authorities said 75 percent of the two-story, wood-framed home was on fire.

It took around 40 firefighters to put out the blaze, which damaged 90 percent of the home and left it uninhabitable. There were no injuries, but three people were displaced by the fire.

The cause is under investigation.
