At about a quarter past eleven in the evening on April 12, Wake Forest and Rolesville fire departments were called to 417 Cottesbrook Drive in Wake Forest. Units dispatched included Rolesville Pumper 153, Engine 151, Rescue 15, Wake Forest Engine 1, Engine 3, Engine 5, Ladder 1 and Battalion 1.
When units arrived the front of the house was engulfed in fire. The fire began in the garage. Witnesses said the family made it out of the house but sadly a family dog did not survive the fire.
The fire was quickly brought under control and while there was extensive damage to the front of the house, most of the families valuable possessions were saved.
More about the aftermath and the families gratitude to responding firefighters can be found online here.
