11 adults, 8 kids displaced after fire at Raleigh apartment complex

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A pickup truck caught on fire and those flames spread into a building in Raleigh.

It happened before the sun came up Tuesday morning on Navaho Drive off Wake Forest Road near the Raleigh Beltline.

"There was like a really loud booming noise and that woke me up. I was like I know I heard something so I looked out my window and right outside my window was a truck on fire," Jalesa Williams said. "I grabbed as much stuff as I could, blankets, shoes and we went outside."

Investigators said nobody was injured, but 11 adults and eight children were displaced from their homes at The Pointe at Midtown apartment complex.

"It's 2020. So I just feel like 2020 said, 'I can't go out without a bang.' I'm just handling it the best way I can," Williams said.

It's unclear at this time how the truck caught fire.
