Durham, NC (December 14, 2021) – Around 7 a.m. on Tuesday morning, December 14, three people sustained injuries in a Durham house fire.
According to Durham officials, the fire broke out in a home at 200 North Maple Street around the area of Taylor Street. When fire crews arrived at the scene, they found that the home was completely engulfed in flames. It took approximately 30 minutes to get the fire out and multiple people were hurt.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. Two firefighters who were battling the blaze sustained injuries and were transported to local hospitals for treatment. One person at the home, who has not yet been identified, sustained a burn to the head and was taken to Duke University Medical Center. All of the victims are expected to recover.
Due to the severity of the incident, the area was blocked off for some time. The front half of the home, as well as the attic, were badly damaged as a result of the fire.
No further details have been released but the investigation remains ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
