Residential Fire: 313 Country Club Road | Aug. 15, 2017
The Chapel Hill Fire Department responded to a residential structure fire at 10:11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, at 313 Country Club Road. The caller reported smoke coming from an outside wall.
There were no injuries.
A contractor for the resident was cleaning the deck of the house using a pressure washer when water appeared to cause an arc on an electrical wire. Thanks to swift work by firefighters, they were able to prevent the fire from spreading beyond a small point in the outside wall.
Three engine companies totaling nine fire personnel were on scene.
The official cause of the fire is under investigation.
