The fire destroyed a 4,600-square-foot home, Wake County Fire Department officials said. Nobody was home at the time and there were no injuries.

"When we arrived on the scene, we had a ... house that was fully involved, two-story," said Fire Chief Barry Spain of the Fairview Fire Department. "We had a collapse, as far as the structure collapsing."

Six fire companies responded to the fire.

Spain said firefighters quickly assessed the situation and realized they had to take a defensive approach, as about 70 percent of the structure was engulfed in flames.
