Raleigh townhouse fire leaves two people homeless

From staff reportsDecember 3, 2013 

— It took Raleigh firefighters a little over a half-hour early Tuesday to bring a fire under control in a two-story townhouse on Coxindale Drive.

Investigators said they had not yet determined what started the fire that damaged more than half of the townhouse at 3013 Coxindale and displaced two people.

The fire was burning in the front of the townhouse and in the attic when firefighters arrived, Lt. John Rasor said.

A call to 911 summoned firefighters at 1:28 a.m., and the fire was brought under control about 2 a.m., Rasor said.

There were no injuries to residents or firefighters.
