Two people were injured and a million-dollar home was significantly damaged in a two-alarm fire at 212 Tennwood Court on Wednesday.
Firefighters came to the three-story house at about 4:30 p.m. to find heavy smoke and a large fire.
Four dogs and two adults, whom fire officials did not identify, had left the house by the time the Durham Fire Department arrived at the home, which is near the Treyburn Country Club golf course.
The fire was under control within 30 minutes, but the department reported extensive fire and water damage.
