CHAPEL HILL – At 7:26 p.m. on January 18th, the Chapel Hill Fire Department responded to a single family residence fire at 215 Nunn Ln.  The initial response consisted of four apparatus and one command vehicle, with a total of fourteen personnel and one unit from Carrboro Fire Department with four personnel.  Orange County Emergency Medical Services and additional Chapel Hill Police Units also responded to assist.

The fire was called in by a passing CHPD patrol officer. The first unit arrived three minutes after dispatch and found heavy fire coming from the roof.  An exterior attack was made while the front door was forced open.  Once the front door was opened, an interior attack was made.  The roof quickly became unstable and the crews exited the house for safety.

The attack continued from the exterior and from the safe interior portions of the house.  It took approximately 45 minutes to control the fire.  Once the greatest portion of the fire was extinguished, and the inside deemed safe, crews were allowed back into the house to extinguish the small remaining fires.

No reported injuries occurred during the fire.  The cause for the fire is currently undetermined and is still under investigation.
